Dom Perignon 2013
Dom Pérignon (1638–1715) was a monk and cellar master at the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers. He pioneered several winemaking techniques around 1670—being the first to blend grapes in such a way as to improve the quality of wines. The development of sparkling wines as Champagne's main production style occurred progressively in the 19th century, more than a century after Dom Pérignon's death. The first vintage of Dom Pérignon was 1921 and was only released for sale in 1936, sailing to New York in the liner Normandie. The brand, not exploited, was given by Champagne Mercier to Moët in 1927 for a wedding between the two families.
