Vintage Brut 2008
Dressed in a bottle with a rare aesthetic and a timeless label, this cuvée was born in 1935 to celebrate the centenary of the London agent of Moët and Chandon, Simon Brothers & Co. It owes its name to the cellarer, the in charge of supplies, of the Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers, Pierre Pérignon. This exact contemporary of Louis XIV (1638-1715) is renowned as the father of champagne. If it is disputed that he was the inventor of bubbles and the cork stopper, Dom Pérignon, as a genius taster, is unanimously recognized as the precursor of the assembly of different vintages, thus opening up to champagnes an infinite range of subtle flavors.
The art of blending is characteristic of the Dom Pérignon cuvée. The wines do not come from particular terroirs, but express the ancestral know-how of the cellar master, in the great tradition of the famous Benedictine monk. It is only offered in the great years in order to always be worthy of its rank.
