Notes: Dom Pérignon is a vintage Champagne made using an approximate blend of 50% Pinot Noir & 50% Chardonnay. Although numbers are never officially published, it is thought that upwards of a million bottles are produced per vintage. Despite this scale, it remains one of the highest-rated & most desirable Champagnes on the market. Exceptional depth, rich texture & great ageing potential characterises this iconic Champagne from the Moët et Chandon stable, named after the Benedictine monk who pioneered Champagne.

 

Producer Info: Dom Pérignon is named after a 17th century Benedictine monk, Dom Pierre Pérignon, who is said to have ‘invented’ sparkling wine during his tenure as cellarmaster at the Abbey of Hautvillers, near the town of Épernay. In truth, his task at the abbey was the polar opposite to the myth – to find a way to prevent a second fermentation in the bottle because so much stock was being lost from exploding bottles.

Sparkling wine was already in production in France, made by bottling wine while it was still fermenting. This method, known as pétillant-naturel or simply ‘pét nat’, is still used today & is increasingly popular with natural wine producers.

It was an English scientist, Christopher Merret, who first recorded the method used in Champagne today – adding sugar to an already fermented wine to cause a second fermentation. He was able to achieve this thanks to the superior strength of English glass bottles, compared to the French equivalents.

What is believed, however, is that Dom Pierre Pérignon pioneered viticultural & winemaking methods that transformed the wines of Champagne – not only did he import the stronger bottles from England, but he also sought to improve the quality of the wine he made.

Moët & Chandon bought the brand name for their prestige cuvée in 1937. Today, Dom Pérignon is part of the Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMH) empire owned by France’s richest man, Bernard Arnault. It has been the Champagne of choice for numerous celebrities & royalty over the years. Memorably it was chosen for the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer & Prince Charles in 1981.
