Dom Perignon 2002

Dom Perignon uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Fermentation occurs entirely in stainless steel tanks with cultured house yeast strains and full malolactic fermentation. Dom Perignon does not use any Pinot Meunier in their blend. There is an emphasis on the balance between the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and the assemblage often be very close to 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay, but overall composition varies with each vintage and can range from approximately 40% to 60% of each grape. The main objective is to include individual component wines that are representative of cru terroir at the highest level.

Dom Perignon has access to all 17 grand crus in champagne for their wine. The basis of the blend is generally from the 8 famous grand crus of Ay, Bouzy, Verzenay, Cramant, Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil and Mailly along with the historic premier cru - home of the Abbey of Dom Perignon in Hautvillers.
