Description:
Fresh, crystalline and sharp, the first nose reveals a unique vegetal, aquatic world, with hints of white pepper and gardenia. The wine's maturity then makes a gentle appearance before exhaling peaty accents.

In the mouth, the attack is direct, a prelude to a lusty roundness that seem to curl up like a plant. The notes of anis and dried ginger glide over fruit skins (pear and mango), creating an effect that is more tactile than fleshy. The finale stretches out and then comes to rest, calm, mature and diffuse.

To this day, Dom Perignon has retained its founder's modern vision of true luxury: always excellent yet always improving. Richard Geoffroy, Dom Perignon Chef de Cave, is the man responsible for the constant reinvention of the wine. The making of each vintage involves a delicate job of assemblage and adjustment - different each time - before the mysterious balance between Dom Perignon's "white" and "black" grapes (chardonnay and pinot noir) can be reached.

This delicate exercise is full of risks. The assemblage of each Dom Perignon vintage is a creative act in the most inspired and daring sense of the term. The extra effort that goes into its making enables each vintage to express its unique character while affirming (through its singularity) the timeless style of Dom Perignon.

Producer Information

The company dates back to 1743 when Claude Moet began shipping wines from the Champagne region of France to Paris. The reign of Louis XV coincided with an increased demand for sparkling wine. Moet expanded rapidly and by the end of the eighteenth century was exporting the drink all over Europe and to the United States.
Claude's grandson Jean-Remy Moet brought the house to international prominence catering to such elite clientele as Thomas Jefferson and Napoleon Bonaparte. Chandon was added to the company name when Jean-Remy Moet turned over half the company to his son Victor Moet, and half to his son-in-law Pierre-Gabriel Chandon de Briailles in 1832.
Following the introduction of the concept of a vintage champagne in 1840, Moet marketed its first vintage in 1842. Their best-selling brand, Brut Imperial was introduced in the 1860s. Their best known label is Dom Perignon, named for the Benedictine monk fondly remembered in legend as the "Father of Champagne".
Moet & Chandon merged with Hennessy Cognac in 1971 and with Louis Vuitton in 1987 to become LVMH-Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the largest luxury group in the world, netting over 16 billion euros in fiscal 2004.
