Dom Perignon champagne owes its name to Pierre Pérignon, the famous monk and cellar master of Abbey de Hautvillers in 1668, who was also known as Dom Pérignon. Legend says that Pierre Pérignon discovered what is known today as the Champagne method. As a point of interest, he taught this method to Benedictine monk, Thierry Ruinart, in 1669, which allowed Ruinart to become the first Champagne house in 1729. Since 1st January 2019, Vincent Chaperon has succeeded Richard Geoffroy as Dom Pérignon’s Cellar Master.
In essence, Dom Pérignon only exists in vintage form. Dom Pérignon Vintage champagne is made from an extremely rigorous selection of the finest grapes. Depending on the quality of the vintage, Dom Pérignon chooses to declare the vintage or not. Showcasing a harmonious whole, Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage has been revealed following 8 years of production and cellaring.
Born at the dawn of the sunny 2006 vintage marked by a hot and dry climate, Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2006 offers the expression of a champagne with a "magnetic elan" in the words of the house’s Cellar Master, Vincent Chaperon, Richard Geoffroy's successor since December 2018.
