DOM PÉRIGNON VINTAGE, 2012

CHAMPAGNE

“Wonderful elegance and balance to this Dom Pérignon with cooked apple, lemon and hints of white pepper and salt. It’s medium-bodied with really fine bubbles and balance. Spicy at the end. So wonderfully fresh, linear and long.” James Suckling 97/100

Histoire et anecdotes

According to the legend, the monk Pierre Pérignon from the Hautvillers Abbey would be the one to originate the champagne method: storage in a cellar, better pressure-resistant bottle, cork, and blending of the three Champagne signature grape varieties. In 1669, he would have passed his knowledge to the Benedictine Thierry Ruinart who founded the first Champagne House in 1729.
