The estate

Dom Pérignon exists only as a vintage wine. Only the best grapes are chosen. Each vintage is unique and reinterprets the unique character of the seasons. Dom Pérignon reinvents itself with each vintage by taking risks.

In 1668, a young Benedictine monk, Dom Pierre Pérignon, was appointed prosecutor at Hautvillers Abbey, overlooking Champagne. His ambition was to create the "best wine in the world" to serve his community. Deeply inspired, his vision revolutionized viticulture with standards that remain the benchmark for all champagne wines. Enjoyed at Versailles by Louis XIV, the Sun King, and his court, "Father Perignon's wine" embodies the birth of French luxury. The creative legacy of Dom Pierre Pérignon is an ambition that is powerfully expressed today in Dom Pérignon champagnes. The aesthetic ideal of Dom Pérignon is a quest.

The vineyard

Dom Pérignon can only be produced from the harvest of a single year: this commitment is absolute. Each Dom Pérignon Vintage is a singular creation, bearing witness each year to a challenge, sometimes that of not declaring the vintage. To fulfill the vision, there is no limit to the creation. Mastery is a prerequisite. To orchestrate its cuvées, Dom Pérignon has the widest access to grapes selected from the 17 Grands Crus of Champagne and the emblematic Premier Cru of Hautvillers. This leads to a creative process that resonates with complexity, fullness and rhythm. And time is part of this equation. Beyond color, maturation and vintage, Dom Pérignon is one and indivisible, and is expressed through Dom Pérignon Vintage, Dom Pérignon Plénitude 2, and Dom Pérignon Rosé.

The Vintage

The 2013 viticultural year is finally returning to the glorious past of late vintages. After a cold and wet winter, a dull spring, very cool and particularly well watered, the vine started its growth with about fifteen days of delay on the ten-year average, delay that it kept until the harvest. A hot and dry summer, the sunniest ever recorded in Champagne, was particularly beneficial for the quality of the grapes. The rains at the beginning of September were quickly replaced by an easterly wind which allowed the grapes to remain healthy until the harvest.

Tasting the grapes reveals a promising balance between acidity and roundness.

The creation of the 2013 vintage reveals the play of resonance between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, acidity and roundness. Its precise, elegant and tactile bouquet deploys an aromatic, delicate flavor around three nuances: that of citrus fruits, that of a more vegetal facet and finally that of spices. This precision reveals an elegance where the wine, after an airy attack, becomes more and more intense.

Tasting Notes

Eye, bouquet, palate

The nose is delicate and reveals itself in colorful touches. The green of eucalyptus, mint and vetiver. The yellow-orange of mirabelle plum, apricot and orange blossom. The brown of pepper, cardamom and licorice stick. The silver of iodine and toast.
