The Five Most Important Champagne Producers

Champagne House #3: Dom PĆ©rignon

Dom PƩrignon is a champagne house that was founded in 1921 by Moƫt & Chandon, one of the largest champagne producers in the world. The brand was named after Dom PƩrignon, a Benedictine monk who is widely credited with inventing champagne. Dom PƩrignon focuses exclusively on producing vintage champagne, which means that all of their bottles are made from grapes harvested in a single year. This is in contrast to most other champagne producers, who blend wines from different years to create a consistent flavor profile.

One of the unique aspects of Dom PĆ©rignon's production process is their use of only the best grapes from each vintage. This means that in some years, they may only produce a limited number of bottles if the quality of the grapes is not up to their standards. The grapes are carefully selected and sorted by hand to ensure that only the highest-quality fruit is used in their champagne.

Dom PĆ©rignon also places a strong emphasis on aging their champagne. They typically age their bottles for at least seven years before release, which allows the flavors to develop and mellow over time. This extended aging period also contributes to the high cost of their champagne, which is some of the most expensive in the world.

Despite being a relatively young champagne house, Dom PĆ©rignon has quickly become one of the most prestigious and well-respected brands in the industry. Their commitment to quality and their unique production methods have earned them a loyal following among champagne enthusiasts and collectors.
