Dom Perignon is the prestige cuvee of the Moët et Chandon Champagne house in France. It is named after the famous monk, who was the most important early influence in the development of Champagne into the sparkling wine we know today. It was not the first Champagne to use his name, as early in the last century small farmer-growers at Hautvilliers, employed it for their wine. Unfortunately for them they did not register the name, Dom Perignon. Sometime around the late 1920's, Champagne Moët adopted his name for their new luxury prestige cuvee of Champagne. Helped in part by Hollywood glamour, this extremely well renowned brand has developed a widespread reputation in countries across the globe. In most vintages it has proved to be excellent quality and is in huge demand. This champagne usually requires no introduction, as there are few wines that can equal it. Grapes : Pinot Noir 33%, Pinot Meunier 33%, Chardonnay 34% Region : France / Champagne / Champagne AOC Colour : Pale yellow with golden highlights Nose : Tones of brioche and honey combined with almond and apricot. Taste : After the upfront intensity and roundness, there is a gradual tension which becomes persistent, vibrant, pure, mineral and fruity. Brioche, honey, Almonds and apricots with a vibrant purity of fruit and a touch of minerality. ABV : 12.50%

90 points Wine Spectator: "There's a high-toned minty graphite accent to the aroma, with a citric edge on the palate. The structure is overlaid with lemon and bread dough notes. This is tight and crisp on the finish, so break out the sole or shellfish, or wait a few years. Best from 2008 through 2020." (07/07)
