Dom Pérignon is vintage champagne only. Each vintage is a creation, singular and unique, that expresses both the character of the year, and the character of Dom Pérignon.

Nose - Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche.

Dom Pérignon Vintage is a wine that needs to be excited. It needs a framework, it appeals to be stretched with contrasts.

Dom Pierre Perignon set out his vision to "create the best wine in the world" when he became Cellar Master at the sacred Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668. Over 40 years of dedication to this mission led to him being seen by many as the 'father of champagne', due to his visionary spirit and exceptional daring approach to the wine making process - in which he effectively laid down the fundamental rules in the methode champenoise. A favored wine of the Sun King Louis XIV, Dom Perignon himself compared his wine to "drinking stars".

Dom Perignon is made through an assemblage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, created by using only the best grapes harvested from the 17 Grands Crus in Champagne and the Premier Cru of Hautvillers. One of the principle hallmarks of this House is its absolute commitment in only releasing in a vintage year. This commitment to vintage only requires Dom Perignon to reinvent itself every year, staying true to the daring and creative principles laid down by the Dom Pierre Pérignon himself. Today, this vision is led by Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon's Chef de Cave.

The flagship of the House - the Vintage Blanc - is a perfect example of the intricacy of Dom Perignon, expressing the perfect harmony and savoir-faire of the wine making process.

The champagne reaches out to the "vegetable" and "mineral" worlds, calling out by sea urchin carbonara with cardamom mousse. It works brilliantly when it has something to chew on: octopus marinated in Sicilian orange juice and roasted in butter.
