The nose has fine intensity with classic background aromas of puree of apples, poached pears, vanilla, hazelnuts, melba toast and yellow-plum jam as well as superb hints of quince and chalk. On the palate the attack is incisive and combines acidic freshness with the finesse of the bubbles.

It's also very fruity with flavours of very ripe light-coloured fruit. Dom Perignon is only produced in the finest vintages from grapes grown on 100% rated vineyards. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks.

At blending, Moet's Senior Winemaker decided to combine 55% Chardonnay for its fresh fruity flavour and structure with 45% Pinot Noir, chosen to add weight and richness.

An old classic, Dom Perignon is enjoyed from Royal tables to Michelin Star restaurants and trendy Bars, and is sometimes the only champagne that will do for special occasions.

The history of Dom Pérignon is the history of wine, itself. The prestige Champagne is named after a Benedictine monk who began blending wines to improve flavor and made improvements to wine bottles and corks. While many believe Dom Pérignon invented Champagne, he did not. His improvements, however, set the stage for the development of méthode champenoise that occurred in the century after his death.

In the 1920s, an Englishman named Laurence Venn suggested producing a prestige Champagne made only from specific vintages. Since most Champagnes were made from a blend of vintages, the idea for a vintage prestige cuvée was a novel one, and Moët & Chandon developed the 1921 vintage of Dom Pérignon.
