2006 Dom Pèrignon ‘Cuvée Dom Pérignon’ 28 september 2015

Dom Pérignon – the name alone makes most of us break out in a delightful smile. When we think of this 17th-century monk from Hautvillers – so often pointed out as the father of Champagne – we either regard him with historical reverence, or associate his name with the proudest of all wine labels and everything else that follows in its glamorous, sparkling wake.

news in the champagne database 10 oktober 2014

It’s not often that revolutionary news appears in my champagne database. Today, however, I have put in quite sensational updates and changes of grape relations for old vintages of Moët & Chandon Vintages and their Vintage Rosés. Unfortunately, the situation is in this way that I often pounded my head bloody over the years in my quest for accurate grape relations.
