First, the name. Is it Dom Perignon or Don Perignon?

The correct spelling of the name is Dom Pérignon. The champagne brand was named after a Benedictine monk by the name of Dom Pierre Perignon who lived in the 17th century in the Abbey of Hautvillers. As cellar master of the abbey, he believed that hard work brought one closer to God, hence why he set out to create the best wine in the world.

Did Dom Pierre Perignon create the champagne method?

No. Some believe that it was the monk Dom Pierre Perignon who first invented the “methode champenoise” or champagne method, by which sugar is added to wine in order to initiate a second fermentation, resulting in carbon dioxide dissolved as bottles in the glass. Nevertheless, this remains an unproven myth. While the monk is, in fact, responsible for several winemaking innovations (including blending grapes to produce a more balanced wine), the champagne method of secondary fermentation was documented several years before his tenure at the abbey.

Is Champagne Dom Perignon its own brand?

What is the best Dom Perignon vintage?

There is no such thing as a “best” Dom Perignon vintage. A bottle of Dom Perignon always contains a unique vintage champagne, meaning that it is always made from the fruit of only one vintage and never a blend of vintages. As the climatic conditions of each vintage are unique, so to is each vintage of Dom Perignon champagne. So while the Dom Perignon 2012 is characterized by a perfect harmony and an energetic palate, the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2010 Champagne stands out for its particularly generous and massive texture on the palate. One is not necessarily better than the other, just different.

What is the Dom Perignon Luminous?

The Dom Perignon Champagne Cuvee Vintage Luminous is a very special edition bottling of Dom Perignon Champagne, bearing a label that glows in the dark.

First released in 1959, the Dom Perignon Rose Champagne is a single-vintage rosé champagne made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. It is often more expensive than its white vintage champagne counterpart. This rosé champagne sees the light of day only after nearly 12 years spent in the cellars of Moet & Chandon.
