The Story

 At the end of the 17th Century, Dom Pierre Pérignon stated his ambition to create ‘the best wine in the world’.  On 29 September 1694, Dom Pierre Pérignon wrote that his mission was to create “the best wine in the world.” He dedicated himself to improving viticulture techniques, perfecting the art blending grapes from different crus, and introduced the gentle and fractional pressing to obtain white wine from black grapes.Ever since, the House of Dom Pérignon has perpetuated this visionary approach instilled by its founder, one that remains a hallmark of true luxury: the constant reinvention of the exceptional.

Under the creative leadership of cellar master Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon is reinvented with every vintage. The miraculous concept of assemblage – the delicate balance between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – and the commitment to Vintage are instrumental in the act of creation, revealing the wine's extra soul. Precise and tactile to the point of seamlessness, tense through rhythm and vibrancy, vigorous and fresh yet mature, intense and complex – such is the sensual style of Dom Pérignon: so inviting, yet so mysterious...

The core of the blend are the eight historical Grands Crus, Aÿ, Bouzy, Verzenay, Mailly, Chouilly, Cramant, Avize and Le Mesnil, plus the legendary Hautvillers Premier Cru. Dom Perignon also has the unique privilege of being able to select grapes from all 17 Grands Crus in Champagne. giving birth to Dom Perignon's highly intriguing contrast".

Vintage 1934

The 1934 vintage was a pleasant exception in the quality of Champagne vintages in the 1930s. A healthy and large (10 500 kg/ha) crop was harvested after a fairly unproblematic growing season. Moët & Chandon produced only 1200 cases of this third official vintage of Dom Pérignon. (50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir blend). This wine really astonished us with its vibrancy and elegance.

THE HARVEST
Generous harvest in mid-September. Rapid flowering in best possible conditions, insignificant damage from disease and insects.

Clear golden colour with some refined bubbles left. The gracefully developed and rich nose highlights the wine’s complexity - oxidative mushroomy aromas turn into powerful roasted coffee with hints of tiramisu. Dry and crisp on the palate with a delicate mousse. Harmonious finish with smokiness and hints of bitter almonds and oxidative hints. Enjoy now in perfect company. No further ageing recommended.
