This reverent old classic is still produced from vineyards owned by the Abbey of Hautvillers, home to the legendary figure of Dom Perignon. For those wishing to mark an occasion, sometimes only Dom Perignon will do!

Distinguished by its depth of flavour and aromatic persistence, the 2009 captures the unique qualities of the year in which it was born while staying true to Dom Pérignon’s signature characteristics.

Building on the experience the maison gained during the challenging 2003 vintage, the 2009 perfectly showcases how obstacles are overcome, and ambitions fulfilled.

Winemakers had to overcome many obstacles and take risks on their way to encouraging the chardonnay and pinot noir grapes of the 2009 harvest to reach their fullest expression. A harsh winter was followed by a mild and rainy spring, and inclement weather in July raised fears for the grapes’ health. A perfect August, however, helped the fruits to emerge magnificently mature and healthy.

About Dom Perignon
When Father Pierre Perignon took over as cellar master at the Benedictine Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668, his avowed goal was "to make the best wine in the world". For a young monk just 30 years old, it took a visionary spirit and exceptional audacity to pursue such lofty ambitions. An exact contemporary of Louis XIV, Dom Perignon transformed the history of wine, just as the Sun King revolutionized the very notion of "art de vivre". Wine was the medium for their meeting, as the excellence of "Father Perignon's wine" earned it a place at the king's table.

More than three centuries later, the House of Dom Perignon perpetuates the visionary approach of its founder, widely considered the spiritual father of Champagne. Released only as a vintage, Dom Perignon is cellar aged for at least seven years prior to release. This time is critical for harmonising the flavours and ensuring that the wine’s balance remains elegant, sensual and ethereal. Dom Perignon can also be enjoyed many years later with rare OEnotheque vintages, released by the Chef de Cave at times when the intensity and complexity of the wine has reached optimum levels. Each new vintage is a unique creative act, reinventing the extraordinary style of a wine that only the Chef de Cave may declare a "vintage year".

"The grapes are never the same from one year to the next. If a harvest does not meet Dom Perignon's unyielding standards, there will be no vintage champagne that year. This isn't a value judgment - it's an aesthetic vision" says Dom Perignon Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy.

The unique personality of Dom Perignon is born of this creative commitment. It is this tension between the distinctive qualities of a year and the timeless spirit that defines Dom Perignon, an unparalleled sensation that imparts weightlessness, airy richness and suppleness from first impression to the long-lasting finish.

Dom Perignon: the best wine in the world.
