Dom Perignon was a 17th Century monk who strived to create the best wine in the world at the time – oh, and he also invented a little thing called the cork! No wonder then that he’s dubbed as the spiritual father of Champagne.
Upon drinking his first sip of Champagne he yelled “I’m drinking the stars!” Ironic, as these days it’s the stars who are drinking it. The rich and famous have been sipping Dom for over 90 years since its first release in 1921.
This 2008 vintage limited edition release marks a special moment in the history of Dom with Chef de Cave (winemaker) Richard Geoffroy hanging up his boots and handing the keys to Vincent Chaperon. Geoffroy has overseen 15 vintages of Dom since 1990, while Chaperon ain’t exactly a novice having worked with Geoffroy since 2005 and declared four vintages himself.
It’s also the first time in Dom Perignon history that a vintage has been released out of sequence with 2009 being released before this 2008, as they felt ’08 needed a bit more time before release.
Comes presented in this striking limited edition “Legacy Edition” Dom Perignon branded gift box and delivered anywhere in NZ with a personalised gift message.
