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 1975 by Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave
The 1975 harvest:
Weather conditions were good throughout the year. As a result of a cold spring, budbreak was extremely late, but flowering took place under near-perfect conditions. The summer was hot and sunny, punctuated by a few storms in August. Harvesting began on 29 September with good weather, which deteriorated rapidly.
On the Nose:
The lightly refreshing attack, with an initial rush of grapefruit, immediately leads to notes of flowery honey and toasted hazelnuts combined with roasted aromas and exotic spices.
On the palate:
The wine in its entirety is particularly consistent, the palette of flavours a mirror of the bouquet’s promise. The classic beauty of a remarkably complex and well-balanced vinosity is extremely attractive. The taste of the fruit is still surprisingly present at this age, acting as a signature note to the finish which marries warm aromas of new leather and gingerbread.
