Dom Perignon 2004

Dom Perignon uses the méthode champenoise for their champagne production. Dom Perignon only makes vintage champagne. Fermentation occurs exclusively in stainless steel tanks with cultured house yeast strains and full malolactic fermentation. There is an emphasis on balance between the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, so the assemblage will often be very close to 50% Pinot Noir and 50% Chardonnay. The primary objective is to include individual component wines that are representative of a vineyard's terroir at the highest level. The 2004 held true to the balance with 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay used in the blend. They do not use any Pinot Meunier. The dosage for the Dom Perignon 2004 Brut was reportedly approximately 6 grams per liter. A warm dry September lead to an abundant harvest of outstanding quality. The 2004 harvest began on September 24.

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