Dom Pierre Perignon set out his vision to "create the best wine in the world" when he became Cellar Master at the sacred Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668. Over 40 years of dedication to this mission led to him being seen by many as the 'father of champagne', due to his visionary spirit and exceptional daring approach to the winemaking process - in which he effectively laid down the fundamental rules in the method champenoise. A favored wine of the Sun King Louis XIV, Dom Perignon himself compared his wine to "drinking stars".
The nose sings out loud and clear, beginning with fresh, intense red fruit: red currants and wild strawberries, complemented by warm notes of ripe hay, blood orange and cocoa. The attack is smooth and embracing, but it is the impression of precision that dominates in the end. The wines' chiseled integrity, intense and penetrating, is prolonged with the unexpected hint of green citrus that marks the vintage.
