Dom Pérignon is the great name of Champagne: a lofty and magnificent name synonymous with elegance, luxury and prestige; a name that directly recalls the abate Pierre Pérignon who, according to legend, invented Champagne in the 17th century in the abbey of Saint-Pierre d'Hautvillers, near Épernay, Grand Cru of the Vallée de la Marne.

The first Dom Pérignon Champagne was produced in 1936 by the maison Moët & Chandon thanks to the idea of Robert-Jean de Vogüe: the goal was to create a cuvée de prestige that embodied the absolute excellence of Champagne and that was able to reap the great heritage of Hautvillers Abbey, owned by the Moët family since 1829. To do this he chef de cave selected the best family reserves by bottling only the best vintages from 1921 onward. The Vintage 1947 is the first Dom Pérignon Champagne produced no longer by the technique of transvasage but born from a harvest made ad hoc. Starting from Vintage 2000 Dom Pérignon acquired the status of an independent maison: for some time already, Dom Pérignon's chef de cave had been working autonomously from that of Moët & Chandon. The current chef de cave is Richard Geoffroy, inventor of the Oenothèque Program, later renamed P2/P3.

Dom Pérignon Champagne is produced only in exceptional vintages from the best grapes sourced exclusively from Grand Cru and, to a small extent, from the Premier Cru of Hautviller. The grapes used are those of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, considered by Richard Geoffroy as "the object of all frustrations, all emotions, all fascinations." The art of blending is based on the pursuit of a continuous lack of balance that can originate tension, energy and dynamism and also on a paradox that manages to create harmony: the graceful soul of Chardonnay combined with the power of Pinot Noir. An aporia from which was born one of the greatest Champagnes of all time: the Dom Pérignon.
