Dom Pérignon is a brand of Champagne produced by Moët et Chandon. It is named after Dom Pérignon, a Benedictine monk who was an important quality pioneer for Champagne wine. Dom Pérignon is a vintage champagne, meaning that it is only made in the best years, and all grapes used to make the wine were harvested in the same year. Many champagnes, by contrast, are non-vintage, which means that the champagne is made from grapes harvested in various years. Dom Perignon Champagne For Sale
The 2004 vintage leaves its mark on the history of Dom Pérignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast with the year before, vine growth was regular and progressed without incident, while the bunches were of a significant number and size. While the weather remained moderate for some time with the month of August particularly cool – the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before the harvest. The harvest began on 24th September with the grapes displaying excellent ripeness and health.
