Dom Perignon 2004
Sparkling wines and Champagne should always be stored in a cool and dry place away from light and heat sources. The ideal temperature for storage is 13-15 degrees C.
Warning: Sparkling wines contain high natural pressure. Do not allow bottles to get warm. Chill bottle before opening and avoid shaking. Point bottle away from others and yourself when removing wire, hood, and cork. Hold the cork firmly and twist out slowly by hand. Never under any circumstances use a corkscrew to open.

The wine’s opulence – contained and succulent, round at heart – reveals itself in the mouth. The envelope slides and stretches, and the wine becomes more complex and edgy, silkier than it is creamy.

Inspiration, creation, and sharing have always been the driving forces in the destiny of the Abbey of Saint Pierre d’Hautvillers, perched on a rolling hill overlooking the Marne Valley in the heart of the Champagne region. This is where Dom Pierre Pérignon dedicated 47 years of his life to pursue his mission to create “the best wine in the world.”

The weather in 2004 was mixed but warm and dry overall. While July was scorching hot, August was unusually cool and wet. The almost summery weather in September made the vintage possible by drying out the few patches of botrytis and maturing the grapes far more than usual. The harvest began on September 11 and lasted nearly three weeks.
