Dom Pérignon Limited Edition Legacy Champagne 2008

There is Champagne and then there is Champagne Dom Pérignon.


Dom Pérignon only makes vintage Champagne. Each and every vintage is singular, marrying the characteristics of the vintage with the style of the house. This wine, the Dom Pérignon Plénitude 1, is the first expression of three Plénitudes, milestones of development of the wine under lees. The first Plénitude, after around nine years of ageing, is bottled and shows promise, completeness and harmony. We know it by name and by sight as the classic Dom Pérignon.

Dom Pérignon Vintage 2008 revisits the archetype of vintage champagne to a degree that could be termed a “paradoxical new classic”, drawing on the best of the two winemakers’ approaches with complementary mutual understanding, blending Richard’s sophisticated and comprehensive knowledge with Vincent’s audacious intuition.

Dom Pérignon announced the release of this celebratory wine on the 19th of June 2018. They also announced the retirement of Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy, a veteran of some 15 vintages, who has shaped the modern vision Dom Pérignon. This limited Legacy Edition bottle celebrates Richard’s career in appropriate style – the 2008 is a widely acclaimed modern classic vintage for the marque. The label bears not only the name of Richard Geoffroy but also his successor, Dom Pérignon's new Chef de Cave, Vincent Chaperon.

Region Champagne

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
