Created in 1668, Dom Pérignon is a vintage champagne produced by Moët & Chandon in France.
To create “the best wine in the world” – such was the ambitious statement of young Dom Pierre Pérignon, a Benedictine monk, as he was named the cellarer of Hautvillers Abbey -located in the heart of Champagne- in 1668.
Gifted with a visionary mind, Dom Pierre Pérignon created, perfected and improved on rudimentary techniques to create a wine like no other. He never gave up his ambitions to create the best wine as he was constantly inventing, perfecting and passing on his enhanced techniques to create a wine whose reputation is second to none. The fame of his wines extended beyond the Champagne region to Versailles because the “wine of Père Pérignon” was ordered by the official merchants supplying the court of the Sun King. He is thus now known as the spiritual father of champagne.
Dom Pérignon is part of the LVMH group, which is taking various steps to protect people and the planet. Measures have been put in place to minimise water and energy usage and the emission of greenhouse gases. The LVMH corporate environmental affairs department ensures close tracking of all related issues at the central level. It supervises a quarterly committee meeting attended by representatives of each subsidiary. The group is also directly involved in many French and European environmental organisations. Each subsidiary has also developed its own environmental management system with support from the environmental affairs department. Several of the LVMH companies have embraced ISO 14001 certification.
