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 1975

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.

Written Notes

A pure Dom Pérignon with everything in its rightful place. Perhaps this wine lacks charm compared to some other vintages, and I go against the grain in preferring the '73. Seams to be a longlived star.
  • 94p
The first magnum was an original release and had a nice, warm nose of mature toast and cream soda, along with wheat and baked caramel apple in the background. In the mouth, it was still fresh out of magnum, warm and round, nutty and creamy with caramel flavors. It had medium weight but was still spritzy, and Wendy found its ‘acidity perfect.'
  • 95p
Golden, amber hue. Orange marmalade, minerals, caramel, nuts, butter, lemon drops, touch of camphor and oxidized apples. Fresh acidity, elegant mousse, burnt butter finish, have had better 75,'s, but better than the aperitif! 92

Inside Information

Almost all Champagne is a blend, and Dom Pérignon is no exception, the chef de cave choosing from the very best lots, dictated both by the quality of the wines available and by the cuvée style. Unlike other prestige Champagne producers, Moët’s chef de cave does not want a super-rich style, but seeks aromatic finesse, a silky texture and a honed elegance. Until 1969, the must would have been fermented in wood, but by 1975 it was all fermented in steel tanks. The style has always placed an emphasis on reduction; that is, protection from oxygen and thus from oxygenation, as the cellarmasters want wines that age well. The final blend spends at least six years on the lees before being disgorged.
