Dom Pérignon is a brand of vintage Champagne produced by the Champagne house Moët & Chandon and serves as that house’s prestige champagne. It is named after Dom Pérignon, a Benedictine monk who was an important quality pioneer for Champagne wine but who, contrary to popular myths, did not discover the champagne method for making sparkling wines.
Moët & Chandon or Moët, is a French winery and co-owner of the luxury goods company Moët-Hennessy • Louis Vuitton. Moët et Chandon is one of the world’s largest champagne producers and a prominent champagne house. The company holds a Royal Warrant to supply champagne to Elizabeth II. Moët et Chandon was established in 1743 by Claude Moët, and today owns more than 1,000 hectares (2,500 acres) of vineyards, and annually produces approximately 26,000,000 bottles of champagne.
Every Grand Vintage is a reinvention, an affirmation of know-how, a free and personal interpretation by the Chef de Cave to reveal each vintage’s unique character.
Grand Vintage perfectly embodies the spirit of Moët & Chandon champagnes. That spirit is based on three essential values:
- freedom of interpretation
- selection of the year’s most remarkable wines
- individuality of the vintage
to achieve champagnes that stand out for their maturity, complexity and presence.
