Dom Pérignon 1996
"This remains a Champagne of fabulous elegance that will offer highly rewarding drinking for decades." Antonio Galloni
|Grape Blend||Chardonnay 55%, Pinot Noir 45%|
The quality of Dom Pérignon is attributed to the fact that it is only made in truly exceptional vintages from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; which are picked from only the very best crus of the entire region.
Dom Pérignon is named after the famous 17th Century Benedictine Monk who actually did more for still wines in the region, contrary to the myth that he invented Champagne.

"The 1996 Vintage is coming along quite nicely. Early notes of tertiary complexity have begun to appear, adding considerable richness and breadth. This remains a Champagne of fabulous elegance that will offer highly rewarding drinking for decades." Antonio Galloni
