Dom Perignon 2006

DOMP185
The Dom Perignon brand is named after the blind Benedictine monk, Dom Perignon, who was believed to have invented the Champagne process at the Abbey of Hautvillers in France in the early 1700's. Since debunked by history, the brand is now owned by Moet et Chandon and continues to evoke the epitome of fine, deluxe vintage wines and remains sought after for its evocative label and bottle design as well as its rich complex flavours.

Producer and Tasting Notes


Moët & Chandon

Moet & Chandon's Champagne brand and family were active in Champagne since the 15th century, although the Champagne House Moët et Chandon was not founded until 1743 by Claude Moët. Today it owns 1,150 hectares (2,800 acres) of vineyards, and annually produces approximately 28,000,000 bottles of champagne. Of those 1,150 hectares of rich chalk soil, 50% are grands crus and 25% are premiers crus.

Tasting Notes

A truly remarkable wine - full bodied, elegant and rich in fruit and texture. The mousse is delightful and opulent with a richness and layers of brioche and white fruits. A long, slightly floral finish compliments the wine perfectly.

Food Matches

Our favourite is with smoked salmon blini's or oysters, but also try it with cold poached fish such as salmon, or asian cuisine.
