Description

Champagne Brut Vintage represents the history of Dom Pérignon and its fame is spread all over the world. This wine is dedicated to the Benedictine monk linked to the origins of Champagne itself.

It is produced with the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, ripened during a single vintage and harvested towards the end of September. The vinification takes place according to the Classic Method, with refermentation in the bottle. Subsequently the wine ages on the lees for at least 8 years, until the time deemed appropriate by the Chef de Cave.


The 2008 vintage

The vintage is characterized by a slightly hot summer, with gray and veiled skies that cleared only at the beginning of the harvest, in mid-September, in time to give the grapes the perfect maturity.

The Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 , the latest signed by the historic Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy, is characterized by a bright straw yellow color with golden reflections. The bouquet is complex on the nose: it opens with aromas of white flowers, citrus fruits and white pulp fruit, enriched with pleasant spicy hints of anise, minced mint balsamic and a finish of woody and toasted notes. On the palate the wine is harmonious, with a well-pronounced fruit, accompanied by a pleasant freshness.

Perfect to accompany fish, shellfish, raw meat and fish dishes, it is the ideal accompaniment to haute cuisine dishes.


The birth of the legend

Dom Pérignon was one of the first cuvée de prestige in the history of Champagne, born from the idea of the English advertiser Laurence Venn, employed at the Simon Bros. & Co. agency, English importer of Moët & Chandon, who imagined to create a Champagne of the highest quality to be sold on allocation to the British aristocracy.

The "Dom Pérignon" brand, inspired by the figure of the monk of the Hautvillers Abbey who lived in the 17th century who had contributed to the qualitative growth of viticulture in the Champagne region, registered by the Maison Mercier, had been sold to the Maison of Épernay in 1927 when Francine Durant-Mercier had married Paul Chandon.

In 1935, 300 bottles of the vintage 1926 forerunners of the future "Dom Pérignon" were given to the agency's best customers. The response was so enthusiastic that 100 cases from the 1921 vintage officially bearing the "Dom Pérignon" brand for the first time were immediately sent to the United States, which remained its only market until 1947.

From 1921 to 2009, Dom Pérignon was produced in 43 vintages: 1921, 1926, 1928, 1929, 1934, 1943, 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1959, 1961, 1962, 1962, 1964, 1966, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1973, 1975, 1976, 1978, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1992, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2009.
