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".

Written Notes

The last vintage in oak barrels. Lighter than many of the old vintages of Dom Pérignon I have tasted, with a sensual acacia honey nose and the usual hint of coffee. It dances in the mouth. Almost Blanc de Blancs in style. Long, pure aftertaste.

The first Champagne was superb. We started off on the right foot with this creamy, nutty, toasty and honeyed nectar. It had this smoky, glazed donut edge and the perfect amount of sweetness possible. In the mouth, it was seamless, balanced and pure with great, granulated sugar flavors and excellent acidity. Someone picked up on ‘caramel.’ This magnum of 1969 Dom Perignon was as good as it gets
  • 96p

I am a big fan of aged Dom Perignon and a champagne this old has to be enjoyed as much like a still white wine as a sparkling. The bubbles have disappeared to about half its strength so it is lightly sparkling. The palate is buttery, creamy and filled with biscuits and toast. There is still minerality, freshness and lift. A delicious champagne if you can find it!
