About This Wine
Moet & Chandon makes a number of great Champagne cuvees, but the top of the line is Dom Perignon.
While there have been challengers to the sparkling wine throne through the years, Dom Perignon maintains a consistent level of superior quality that is equaled in some years by some Champagne houses, but rarely surpassed. So it is with the 2006 vintage.
“The immediate impression is of the mildness of the pure, airy, bright bouquet,” Dom Perignon’s vintner tells us. “The wine’s opulence — contained and succulent, round at heart — reveals itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy.”
A traditional blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the 2006 vintage received widespread acclaim from the wine media, including an impressive 96 rating from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate. It’s another in a long line of special Dom Perignon Champagnes.
Champagne is a sparkling wine produced by inducing the in-bottle secondary fermentation of the wine to effect carbonation. It is produced exclusively within the Champagne region of France.
