Dom Pérignon champagnes are not released every year, but rather only in the years when the grape harvest is perfect. This ensures that every single bottle of Dom Pérignon champagne is according to the highest standards in the champagne business. This makes the Dom Pérignon an elite champagne that can be enjoyed in any top-quality restaurant, bar or club.
History of Dom Pérignon Vintage
The champagne house is named after a Benedictine monk named Dom Pérignon, who had a vision of creating the best champagne in the world. The house still holds this tradition and they strive to create the very best blends each year their vintage champagnes are created. This is one of the main reasons why they only release their blends when the harvest’s quality is sufficient enough.
Dom Pérignon was the first prestige cuvée champagne that was released in 1921. Today, this champagne producing house is one of the leading companies in the champagne business and their brand has become a household name. Throughout history, Dom Pérignon champagnes have been often served at royal gatherings, such as the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles.
The Signature Blend of Dom Pérignon Vintage
The signature blend of Dom Pérignon is made of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. What makes this blend special is that the ingredients that go into the champagne are extremely high quality. This is a vintage champagne, which means that it is released only when a year’s grape harvest is absolutely perfect. Quality is one of the most important things for the champagne house and this can be clearly seen and tasted in their sparkling wines.
Each bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage has to sit for at least eight years in one of the champagne house’s cellars in order for it to strike the perfect balance the house is known for.
