logo Champagne Dom pérignon

The Champagne Dom Pérignon owes its name to the famous monk and prosecutor of the Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668, Pierre Pérignon (known as Dom Pérignon). According to the legend, Pierre Pérignon would have discovered what we call today the Champagne method. For the anecdote, he will teach this method in 1669 to the Benedictine Thierry Ruinart which will allow another famous champagne house, the House Ruinart, to become historically the first Champagne House in 1729.

The brand of Champagne Dom Pérignon is a Champagne House that is directly inspired and imbued with the philosophy of Pierre Perignon, which lies in the search for the ultimate perfection of Champagne wine.

The creation of the 2013 vintage reveals the play of resonances between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, acidity and roundness. Its precise, elegant and tactile bouquet deploys an aromatic, delicate flavor, around three nuances: that of citrus fruits, that of a more vegetable facet and finally that of spices. This precision reveals an elegance where the wine, after an airy attack, becomes more and more intense.

The history of the house Dom Pérignon,
this world famous champagne

The story of Dom Pérignon begins nearly three centuries ago. Born in 1638 in Sainte-Menehould in Argonne, could Pierre Pérignon imagine that he would become the "spiritual father of Champagne"? One thing is certain, his name has crossed the centuries by fuelling the debate. According to the legend, Pierre Pérignon discovered what we call today the méthode champenoise.

Ordained a priest in 1667, it is in 1668 that Dom Pierre Pérignon took up his post as cellarer at the Abbey of Hautvillers. Located not far from Épernay, in the Marne region of Champagne, the Abbey of Hautvillers was founded around 650 by the archbishop of Reims, named Saint-Nivard. The magnificent architectural complex, now owned by Moët & Chandon, was renovated under the impetus of Catherine de Médicis in the 16th century, after having been destroyed and rebuilt many times. Upon his arrival, Dom Pierre Pérignon continued the renovation work and built new buildings. Written documents show that he was called "Dom Pieærre" or "Dom procureur". In charge of managing the monastic affairs and making the vineyard activity prosper, Dom Pérignon will distinguish himself by his ability to elaborate still wines with grapes coming from "the Mountain" and "the River". Having become blind, it is said that Dom Pérignon tasted grapes from different crus and grape varieties of the Champagne region to make the blends. He was endowed with a great gustatory sensitivity allowing him to identify the typicity of a vintage by being able to classify them according to the year of harvest.
Dom Pierre Pérignon mastered perfectly each step of the wine making process, from the viticulture to the blending, through the vinification.

Although Dom Pierre Pérignon's reputation as the initiator of the Champagne method was born during the 17th century, the first cuvée bearing his name was not elaborated until 1921.

The imprint on the Champagnes Dom Pérignon

Much more than a world-famous brand, "Dom Pé" embodies an emblem of French luxury and above all a unique style. Whether you are an avid wine lover or a curious connoisseur, there is no mistaking it. The Champagne Dom Pérignon has that unquestionable chic and unwavering consistency of quality that makes one remember the moment of tasting Dom Pérignon.

Emblematic Champagne, Dom Pérignon is also closely associated with the first James Bond films. In 1962's James Bond 007 vs. Dr. No, James Bond grabs a bottle of Dom Pérignon 1955 to defend young Honey and puts it back down, ironically declaring "I prefer the 1953."

In addition to the collaborations with artists, Champagne Dom Pérignon can be discovered in three phases: P1, P2 and P3. This concept of "Plénitude" allows us to discover the evolution of a Champagne Dom Pérignon at different stages of its maturation and therefore of its evolution.

From the great Vintage 1998 to the Rosé 1996 Plénitude 2 without forgetting the Rosé Vintage 2006 or the very concentrated Vintage 2003, VINTAGE 2012, DOM PÉRIGNON X LADY GAGA VINTAGE 2010, VINTAGE ROSÉ 2008, VINTAGE BLANC 2003 PLÉNITUDE 2, each vintage of Dom Pérignon is an invitation to discover the expression of a year .Like a conductor, the cellar master brings together the terroirs to create a unique and exceptional composition. Each year, the cellar master creates the story of a new vintage by maintaining the brand's style while revealing the unique expression of that exceptional year.

For him, the questions that must constantly remain in the mind of the Chef de Caves are, "What will the declaration of a new vintage bring to the story of the expertise of Dom Pérignon?"
In 2019, Vincent Chaperon, working closely with Richard Geoffroy for thirteen years as an apprentice, succeeds him.

This is a rare and exceptional champagne.

When connoisseurs talk about Dom, they are referring to champagne, not to the Benedictine monk. Launched in the 1930s, Dom Pérignon was for a long time the flagship of Moët & Chandon, but in recent decades it has acquired its own identity.

"This is the place where Dom Pierre Pérignon, a Benedictine monk, devoted 47 years of his life to inventing and perfecting techniques to create a wine whose reputation became unparalleled."

The word "technique" reminds us that the monk is not the inventor of champagne. Pierre Pérignon pushes the art of creation to a level of perfection never before equaled in Champagne: he develops precise viticultural techniques to improve the quality of the grapes, he reworks the blends of different vintages and opts for fractional pressing, but also less aggressive, in order to obtain white juice from black grapes.

The myth of Dom Pérignon, who died in 1715, was born long after his death. His memory will be exhumed in the 1820s, when Pierre-Gabriel Chandon, who has just married Adélaïde Moët, acquires the vineyards and the old abbey of Hautvillers. In 1932, when the sales suffered the setbacks of the crisis, the Champenois - very inspired - decided to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the great "invention" of the monk. A totally arbitrary date, but one which, indeed, managed to stimulate demand.

That same year, at a meeting of the Big Brand Syndicate, an advisor by the name of Lawrence Venn suggested launching an absolute luxury brand. Given the state of the world economy, his proposal must have sounded as stupid as Marie Antoinette's famous statement: "Let them eat brioche"! But the idea caught the attention of Robert-Jean de Vogüé, the new sales director of Moët & Chandon, who invited Venn to dinner to develop a battle plan to create Dom Pérignon.

The champagne was released in London in 1935, in a replica of a 16th century bottle with an imposing shield-shaped label. The Cuvée Centenaire still does not mark the birth of the monk, but the hundredth anniversary of Simon Brothers, British representatives of Moët, who want to offer their hundred best customers an exceptional wine.

This 1926 vintage did not yet bear the famous name, but it was talked about as far away as America. The following year, a shipment of only 100 cases was sent to New York aboard the French luxury liner Normandie. This time, it was an older vintage, from 1921, very high end, which was indeed named Dom Pérignon.

The price of a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne depends strongly on the quality of the vintage and its age. On average the price of a bottle of Dom Perignon is around 225€ DOM PÉRIGNON X LADY GAGA VINTAGE 2010 . The recent vintages are rather around 215€ (DOM PÉRIGNON VINTAGE 2012) while the oldest and thus rare ones can reach 500€ (DOM PÉRIGNON VINTAGE BLANC 2003 PLÉNITUDE 2).

The most expensivebottle of Dom Perignon is a Dom Perignon Rosé Vintage Gold in Methuselah format which is sold for 50,000€, its bottle is so elegant that anyone who looks at it will literally fall in love with it.

The reasons for the genesis of the myth of Dom Pérignon, "inventor" of sparkling Champagne, are purely commercial. The Abbaye de Hautvillers, owned by Mercier, is now part of Moët & Chandon, since the latter acquired Mercier. The myth was born when the prestige cuvée Dom Pérignon was created by Moët & Chandon.

LVMH (Moët Hennessy - Louis Vuitton) is the owner of the house Dom Pérignon. It is a French multinational company that designs, produces and distributes luxury goods.

Robert Parker score: 98 / 100

Great acidity and enormous intensity of flavor, backed by vibrant acidity, make this an exquisite Champagne. It should drink well for 25 years, perhaps longer. It's worth remembering that Dom Perignon's 1971 Cuvée Rosé is still drinking exquisitely. One realizes how long these sparkling wines can have a life. The production is confidential. It is a rare and exceptional champagne.

Robert Parker score: 98 / 100
An intense color, between lemon and straw. A fragrant nose with intense aromas of jasmine, cinnamon, buttered toast, applesauce and candied ginger. On the palate there is a concentration of honey and nuts, warm apple pie and spices. This gives it a fine structure and you'll notice a very long finish. Drink now.

Robert Parker Rating: 96+ / 100The2008 Dom Perignon is the finest release from this iconic vintage since the 1996. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, deep, and full-bodied, its notable fleshiness and amplitude controlled by incisive acids, with a youthful, exuberant yet elegant mousse and a long, beautifully delineated finish. This is a remarkable achievement and a fitting release to conclude Richard Geoffroy's tenure as cellar master.

Robert Parker Rating: 96 / 100
On the nose, you're going to experience a very floral attack that gives way to notes of acacia honey and candied fruit. It is a wine with a lot of fullness and vinosity in the mouth. Notes of figs and grapes are very dominant, then gives way to undergrowth. An exceptional year that gave birth to a great Dom Pérignon. To drink now.

Robert Parker's rating: 96 / 100Abeautiful yellow color with green reflections. A nose with notes of honey and roasted almonds. A very light and abundant foam. It is an elegant Dom Pérignon, and with a tenacious finish. Drink now.


In the 2000s of Dom Pérignon we recommend the 2005 rated 94 / 100 by Wine spectator:

On the nose, we notice this bouquet of great richness. Notes of black fruits very intense, with an important minerality. To wrap it all up, there are superb notes of praline and coriander.

On the palate the wine has real character. It asserts its presence firmly, it is structured and solid. In the finish, we notice notes of spices and flowers that last during each sip.
