Description: Dom Perignon is vintage champagne. It is only made in good years, and only 40 vintages have been produced between 1921 and 2004. Dom Perignon is the prestige end of a range of champagnes produced by Moet et Chandon, one of the world's biggest champagne houses. The prestige cuvee is named after Dom Pierre Perignon (1638-1715), a Benedictine monk who focused on making sparkling whites when red was the more popular drink. It is a myth that he invented champagne, but he did develop sparkling wine styles. The wine we know as champagne did not evolve into its current style until the middle of the 19th century. The 2004 vintage leaves its mark on the history of Dom Perignon for its ease and generosity. In contrast with the year before, vine growth was regular and progressed without incident, while the bunches were of a significant number and size. While the weather remained moderate for some time with the month of August particularly cool - the vintage was defined by the dry heat of the final weeks before the harvest. The harvest began on 24th September with the grapes displaying excellent ripeness and health.
