PRODUCER: In 1668, Dom Pierre Pérignon, a Benedictine monk, was appointed procurator at the Abbey of Hautvillers. At a time when everything was guided by empirical methods, Dom Pierre Pérignon developed revolutionary techniques for viticulture and winemaking based on precise rules. Father Pérignon modernized the abbey, restored its vineyard, and set about to make "the best wine in the world". The "wine of Father Pérignon" became one of the most sought-after wines in France. It was served at Versailles and enjoyed by none other than Louis XIV. Profoundly inspired, his vision revolutionized winemaking with standards that remain at the heart of all champagne wines today. The legacy of Dom Pierre Pérignon continues to nourish Dom Pérignon's creative vision.
WINEMAKING: All creative processes have their constraints. Dom Pérignon's constraint is the Vintage: Dom Pérignon can only be produced from the harvest of a single year. Dom Pérignon is designed to be confronted with time. Both the White and – remarkably – the Rosé are widely recognized for their impressive aging potential. A triumph of non-oxidation and the mystery of aging on the lees (of the yeast, which makes it effervescent), the wine goes through slow, subtle metamorphoses. The style of Dom Pérignon is perfected. This slow aging is the price that has to be paid to make Dom Pérignon stand out as one of the most complex of all wines. It takes no fewer than eight years in the cellar before Dom Pérignon expresses its first plenitude.
TASTING NOTES: Green notes – eucalyptus, mint and vetiver – combine with yellow-orange notes of mirabelle plums, apricots and orange blossom, along with pepper, cardamom and liquorice and ending with saline and toasty notes. The mouthfeel is elegant, refined, silky and luxuriously simple, while the finish is dominated by a deep salinity.
