Description

The venerable Champagne house created Dom Pérignon in 1921 as its top cuvée. The vintage was not released, however, until 1936. Originally produced from aged, vintage Moët & Chandon, the brand switched to a distinctly unique production for Dom Pérignon in the ‘40s. Each bottling of Dom Pérignon contains grapes only from a single year, showcasing that vintage’s unique characteristics. Dom Pérignon does not produce a non-vintage wine, prioritizing quality over quantity.

Tasting Notes

Disgorged in October 2022, the 2013 Dom Pérignon is a charming and elegant vintage for this cuvée. It reveals complex aromas of buttery pastry, spices, citrus oil, almonds, honey and, with aeration, a touch of smoke. The palate is medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced, with a chiseled and tightly wound profile. The long, cool growing season has brought freshness and a delicate earthy note to the finish.
