Vintage 2009 magnum (1.5 liter)
Dom Perignon is the top cuvee by Moet & Chandon, and only produced in good vintage years. In 1921 the brand name Dom Perignon was used for the first time, although not until 1947 the name referred to a champagne made of exclusive grapes and its own production. 'DP' is made of well ripe fruit picked in sunny vineyards, and is a blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. The blend varies per vintage. After second fermentation the champagne is allowed about eight years on it lees to ripen.
2009 was a very good year: this champagne is great to drink now, but could age a bit longer.
