Dom Pèrignon

Dom Pèrignon

HISTORY

A story that began over three centuries ago is the Champagne Dom Pérignon, inextricably linked to the figure of Pierre Pérignon, a Benedictine monk who according to legend was the one who put the method of fermentation in the bottle. Born in 1638 in Sainte-Menehould, Pierre Pérignon has always been familiar with the world of vineyards and wine, but it seems that only during a trip to the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire did he learn of a winemaking technique used to make sparkling wine. Returning to his monastery, Pierre Pérignon began to experiment, arriving, in fact, to make the first "Champagne". Between history and legend, today the Dom Pérignon is considered the Champagne par excellence, the most famous and most celebrated in the world, born of at least two very happy intuitions. The first, precisely, is that of the Benedictine monk Pierre Pérignon, while the second is that of Robert-Jean De Vogüe, the director of Moët et Chandon, who in the 1930s thought of using some reserves for the first time of 1921, to create a new and extraordinary cuvée, dedicated to Pierre Pérignon. The result was a unique Champagne, whose assembly comes from grapes from vineyards mainly in Grand Cru, located in the French municipalities of Ay, Bouzy, Verzenay, Mailly and Hautvillers for pinot noir, and those of Cramant, Choully, Avize and Le Mesnil for chardonnay. Rosé or in a "Vintage" edition, the Maison Dom Pérignon today creates only vintage Champagne, children of the exclusive character of each season and the result of an elaboration that lasts at least eight years.
