Winemaker Notes

Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010 was a bold wager, the fruit of an unwavering commitment to expressing nature, coupled with the freedom that makes audacious endeavors possible.

Dom Pérignon pairs beautifully with seafood and fish such as oysters, scallops, and sea bass; and meats such as veal, quail, and foie gras. It also pairs well with cheese such as parmesan, vegetables such as leeks, truffles, and mushrooms, and herbs and spices including ginger, cumin, and saffron.

On the Nose:
The luminous sweetness of tropical fruit – green mango, melon, pineapple – instantly shines. It then cedes to more temperate notes, the tingle of orange zest, the mist of a mandarin orange. The wine breathes, revealing its freshness. The bloom after the rain. A tactile sensation of peony, jasmine and lilac.

On the Palate:
The wine immediately imposes its ample presence, full and massive. A sappy sensation dominates as the tactile is rapidly overtaken by the aromatic. The body unfolds: generous, firm and controlled. Then it contracts, letting the wine vibrate with spices and pepper.

About Dom Perignon

Made from only the best grapes, Dom Pérignon commitment to vintages is absolute. Each Vintage wine is created from the best grapes grown in one single year – a true challenge for a unique interpretation of the seasons, and for reinvention.

Each vintage embodies the total faith in the Power of Creation that is constantly renewed by Chef de Cave Vincent Chaperon.

Dom Pierre Perignon, a French Benedictine monk, 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. Dom Perignon dedicated over 40 years to this mission, employing a visionary spirit and daring approach to the wine making process. Over that time, he became known as the ‘father of champagne’ for laying down the fundamental rules for the traditional Champagne production method (La Methode Champenoise or Traditionelle). A favored wine of the Sun King Louis XIV, Dom Perignon himself compared his wine to “drinking stars”.

How Dom Perignon is Made

Dom Perignon Champagne is made through an assemblage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, created by using only the best grapes harvested from the 17 Grands Crus in Champagne and the Premier Cru of Hautvillers. One of the principle hallmarks of Dom Perignon is its absolute commitment to only producing vintage wines. Unlike many other Champagne houses, Dom Perignon does not produce a non-vintage Champagne. This commitment to vintage only requires Dom Perignon to reinvent itself every year, staying true to the daring and creative principles laid down by the Dom Pierre Perignon himself.
