The experts' opinion
Discover the note
Discover the structure of this Champagne
Harmonious balance that exists between the different components of acidity.
Soft Champagne easy to drink, the acidity does not hurt the mouth.
Generous champagne, with a great intensity.
Length in mouth
The aromas of Champagne persist in the mouth.
The nose is complete and changing, mixing flowers and fruits, then vegetal and mineral. The bouquet is tactile. From powdery white flowers to the sweetness of apricot and mirabelle plum. From the freshness of rhubarb and mint to the minerality of ash. White pepper.
Energy dominates the palate. After a welcoming opening, the wine quickly vibrates. The effervescence reveals itself, the sensation is tonic. Channeled by acids and bitters, the finish tightens. It leaves its mark: ginger, tobacco, toast.

About this house
In 1668, the young Benedictine monk Dom Pierre Pérignon was appointed procurator of the abbey of Hautvillers, in the heights of Champagne.
Having succeeded in transforming wine into champagne, he has since embodied the original and mystical character of the creation of champagne.
Dom Pérignon is driven by an unwavering commitment: each vintage reflects the uniqueness of its year.
Through each of his vintages, Dom Pérignon tirelessly pursues his quest for a profound aesthetic ideal: to create and reveal the harmony of a constantly evolving nature.
