Produced only in the finest vintages, Dom Perignon is Moet et Chandon's prestige cuvee Champagne. Usually a blend of half-and-half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (give or take a few per cent here or there), it is rightly regarded as one of the very finest Champagnes, with the ability to age gracefully over many years. The wine is named after Pierre Perignon, the monk at the Abbey of Hautvillers who, legend has it, 'discovered Champagne' in the 17th Century and announced it was like "drinking stars".
Reviews: "Fresh and elegant, with characteristic doughy, yeasty flavors and a touch of honey and mocha. Smooth, supple and a touch herbal..." Wine Spectator (Oct 1995) 88 pts.
