Dom Pérignon is a champagne with the most famous brand in the world. It receives its name in honor of Pierre Pérignon, Benedictine monk who is credited with discovering the Champanoise method. The legend says that when he tasted this drink for the first time he exclaimed “come soon, I’m testing the stars.”
With this background story, Möet-Henessy decides to create this champagne in 1921, although it was not put up for sale in 1936. It is a “vintage” that is only made in vintage improvements and with a minimum aging of 8 years. The vintage of 2006 is a coupage of chardonnay and pinot noir that combines intensity and freshness with aromas of tropical fruits, stone fruits and citrus fruits. With a lot of body and expressive. A champagne classic that I recommend to accompany risottos, birds and blue fish
It is a pale yellow champagne with gold highlights. The first floral nose quickly gives rise to fresh almond, dried apricot and toasted bun. On the palate is all roundness and harmony. Exceptional harvest for its great balance between power and acidity.
