The Dom Perignon Vintage 2008 celebrates the legacy from Richard Geoffroy, Dom Pérignon Chef de Cave, to his successor, Vincent Chaperon. Each box tells the story of the Dom Perignon legacy from the perspective of our two world class winemakers: Richard Geoffroy on his tenure over the last two decades at the House of Dom Perignon, and Vincent Chaperon and the future vision he is bringing to Dom Perignon.
Dom Pierre Perignon set out his vision to "create the best wine in the world" when he became Cellar Master at the sacred Abbey of Hautvillers in 1668. Over 40 years of dedication to this mission led to him being seen by many as the 'father of champagne', due to his visionary spirit and exceptional daring approach to the wine making process - in which he effectively laid down the fundamental rules in the methode champenoise. A favored wine of the Sun King Louis XIV, Dom Perignon himself compared his wine to "drinking stars."
