Dom Perignon 2008

DOMP220
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.

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

"Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche. The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist". (www.Domperignon.com)

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.
