Dom Perignon Blanc
Upfront intensity and roundness, there is a gradual tension which becomes persistent, vibrant, pure mineral and fruity. Here, the assemblage is far more than a standard procedure.
Inspiration, creation and sharing have always been the driving forces in the destiny of the Abbey of Saint Pierre d’Hautvillers. Over the centuries, this exceptional building has witnessed the passing of both the powerful and the humble; it has lived on its own local scale all the vicissitudes of the History of France.
This is the place where Dom Pierre Pérignon dedicated 47 years of his life to invent and perfect the techniques to create a wine whose reputation knows no equal. Perched on a rolling hill overlooking the Marne Valley in the heart of the Champagne region, the Benedictine abbey is the place where he pursued his mission to create “the best wine in the world.”
Today, the heritage that Dom Pérignon receives never prevents the expression of its creation. Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave, finds here the inspiration to create the Dom Pérignon Vintages.
“The legacy of the Abbey of Hautvillers, where Dom Pierre Pérignon lived, is beyond technical, it is first and foremost spiritual. Inspiration finds me here, as I walk its grounds and I become one with this space, with no objective other than remaining true to the timeless essence of Dom Pérignon.” – Richard Geoffroy, Chef de Cave
