2006 Dom Pèrignon ‘Cuvée Dom Pérignon’

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.

Benoit Gouez Champagne champagne database Moët & Chandon

news in the champagne database

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. Often, the houses themselves do not have the correct relations and too often I have received conflicting information from different people at the same house.

Benoit Gouez at Moët & Chandon belongs to the small group who really cares about this. He has been, since he took got in charge researched old archives and just this week he found a list of the blends down to the beginning of the 1900s. Read and marvel.
