Producer Note

Dom Pérignon is the prestige cuvée of prestige cuvées. Uniquely only available as a vintage champagne produced in exceptional years from just two grape varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Dom Pérignon is an iconic wine with an unrivalled heritage. Often considered one of the founding fathers of Champagne itself, the Benedictine Monk Dom Pierre Pérignon spent forty-seven years working in the historic Abbey of Hautvillers pursuing his ambition to create the “best wine in the world”.

Today, that legacy lives on. Produced in amazing volumes yet retaining its sheer class, Moët & Chandon’s prestige cuvée is so distinguishable, the two brands are best considered autonomous. Based on a core of Grand Cru villages and the oldest vines of the Premier Cru of Hautvillers, ‘The Dom’ is a wine of tension, power and long-ageing endurance and has been the vision of talented Chef de Cave, Vincent Chaperon, for over two and a half decades. Geoffroy’s unique winemaking philosophy is to allow the personality of each vintage to express itself and compliment it with the famous House style, rather than simply re-creating an identical blend each year.

Tasting Note

Rich fruit. Nose is quite forward, with that trade mark match-strike smokey character subtly coming through. Smokey bacon, pineapple and guava on the palate with underlying ripe lemons and bright red apples, all wrapped around a texture from long lees ageing. Finishes very fresh and light, dances on the palate with a hint of that saline and twist of bitterness which really help balance the delicacy and finish.
