Moët et Chandon was established in 1743 by Claude Moet, and today owns 1,190 hectares (2,900 acres) of vineyards, and annually produces approximately 28,000,000 bottles of champagne. It is named after Dom Pierre Pérignon, a Benedictine monk who was an important quality pioneer for Champagne wine but who, contrary to popular myths, did not discover the champagne method for making sparkling wines.
WINEMAKING: Dom Perignon 2010 Vintage Champagne has aged for at least 8 years in their cellars and embodies the world-renowned perfect balance of Dom Perignon. Each vintage is a new creation that is singular and unique expressing the true character of the year. 2010 was an incredibly challenging year in the vineyards and triggered a real race against the clock to produce a wine however the challenge was met and Dom Perignon declared a vintage that they have referred to as the 'fruit of intuition and mastery'.
TASTING NOTE: On the nose, sweet tropical fruits shine through such as mango, melon and pineapple with hints of citrus zest and fresh orange. A freshness is revealed with blooming jasmine, peony and lilac notes. On the palate, this wine is full and expressive unfolding bold and generous flavours and textures leading to peppery spices and a controlled, saline finish.
