WHEN CHRISTIAN DIOR INVITES DOM PERIGNON

In this luxurious boutique*, symboling the quintessence of French elegance, you can get a glimpse of a private lounge. Only a few guests received an exclusive invite to come and relax on the wonderfully comfortable, velvet grey couch. On the other side of the room, Nick Lane addresses the audience.
Tonight, he is sharing the history of the finest wine in the Champagne region, now the most famous in the world. The travel through time starts with Pierre Perignon, at the end of the 17th century. This Benedictine monk, which name would later become a brand, invented the first traditional method champenoise… Only the very best grapes are selected today to give a future vintage its full character. This quest for perfect balance, exquisite refinement, upmost purity matter so much, only the very best nectars will be bottled.
This champagne proves its uniqueness by focusing exclusively on vintages. Some brands would find it limiting, Dom Perignon simply took the challenge and made it its signature. Time, you will have guessed, rules over this prestigious sparkling wine. It took no less than 16 years for the P2 to reach its full plenitude. The 2006 is more on the classical side, offering a delightful minerality. The 2009, born of a very sunny year, brings warmer notes to the palate. The lesson? A single harvest can be expressed in several vintages: you simply have the find the one that brings the full magic to your senses.
