Named after the 17th Century Benedictine Monk, Dom Pierre Pérignon who is said to have invented sparkling wine at the Abbey of Hautvillers near Épernay. While this may not be 100% historically accurate, what is undoubtedly true is that his name is now synonymous the world over for one of Champagne’s most iconic products.

Moët & Chandon bought the brand name for their prestige cuvée in 1937 which has been the Champagne of choice for numerous celebrities and royalty over the years, while simultaneously receiving consistently impressive scores from critics with every release.

Only made in years considered to have produced fruit of the required health and ripeness, each bottling is a unique product of the vintage that is often used as a benchmark for quality.

James Suckling has scored the 2013 with a stonking 98 points that beats its stunning predecessor in 2012 and joins the incredible 2008 vintage on the leaderboard. In fact, the only Dom Perignon Blanc to be granted a higher score (by just one point) are the 1990 and 1996 Oenetheque.
