The Estate and the Vineyard
The history of the Maison Dom Pérignon carries a creative ambition, always in search of harmony and originality, which is a sign of its singularity.
Dom Pérignon has therefore chosen to stand out and create liqueurs of great value, by producing vintage cuvées. This absolute commitment, to be the unique witness of a single year harvest, whatever the challenge, can force this prestigious and ancestral house of Champagne, not to declare the vintage, If the latter does not meet the requirements imposed by the specifications, Dom Pérignon is appointed.
It will take no less than 8 to 9 years of development, to reach the aesthetic and gustative ideal of Dom Pérignon.
Each vintage goes through a slow transformation in contact with the yeasts, in the darkness of the Cellar, in order to give birth to bottles of great accuracy, a harmonious and accomplished balance.
The beginning of 2012 contrasts with the decade, with rather low temperatures, despite a hot summer, with rare rains. Everything changes in mid-August, because in two days, it rained the equivalent of two months of rain, which triggered a generous and temperate maturation, under the impulse of heat and water, requiring in fact a drastic sorting of the berries.
Vintage 2012 is undeniably exceptional, offering an imposing, firm and generous champagne, which is characterized by its sweetness, freshness and the energy it transmits through its bright and fine bubbles.
