Dom Pérignon, named after Dom 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, is a brand of vintage champagne produced by the champagne house – Moët & Chandon – and serves as the house’s prestige champagne.
Dom Pérignon is always a vintage champagne, meaning that it is not made in weak years, and all grapes used to make the wine were harvested in the same year. The first vintage of Dom Pérignon was 1921 and was only released for sale in 1936, sailing to New York in the liner Normandie. The brand, not exploited, was given by Champagne Mercier to Moët in 1927 for a wedding between the two families.
Though considered a classic, this doesn’t stop Dom Pérignon from ever-evolving and creating new, equally as sensational champagne flavours for you to enjoy.
