  Moet & Chandon is one of the most well-known luxury champagne producers in the word. With over 2,500 acres of vineyards and an annual champagne production of 26,000,000 bottles, Moet & Chandon lives, breathes, and, of course, drinks champagne. The House of Moet was founded in 1743 by Claude Moet, but it wasn’t until his grandson, Jean-Remy Moet, took over that the company really took off and became an international luxury brand. Jean-Remy Moet strove to bring the pleasure of champagne to everyone he could, forming partnerships with both French and international clients on a regular basis. When Jean-Remy Moet sold the House of Moet to his son Victor Moet and his son-in-law Pierre-Gabriel Chandon in 1833, the ensuing partnership formed Moet & Chandon. Shortly after the new branding, in 1842, Moet & Chandon released its first vintage champagne, leading the way to even higher-quality champagne. In 1921, they produced their first prestige cuvée under the brand Dom Pérignon, named after a Benedictine monk who was an important pioneer for champagne. The first vintage released for sale was in 1936, and today it is managed by winemaker Richard Geoffroy. Read less

I was excited to get to taste such a well-known champagne. Toasty bread and biscuit notes alongside citrus. Very concentrated flavors on the palate, I really liked the tight focus of flavors. Quite dry. Sharp, crisp acidity. I liked this wine quite a bit, though it does come with a hefty price.

Light in feel and exceptionally elegant. Creamy in texture with persistent, tiny bubbles. Classic Champagne nose and flavors of yeast, toast, pear, minerals and subtle tropical fruits that seem to gain weight with each sip. Very crisp and clean, the essence of purity. A wine to sip every night before dinner when we become billionaires.

Wafts of seaside air and citrus fruits on the nose. It brings a lovely graininess to the palate with flavours of pear and cream. And the finish goes on forever! A lovely champagne

    I really don't think I have enjoyed champagne until I had this. Sure, I'd like a glass here or there to mix with orange juice or on new years or to freshen my palate or celebrate, but I never said, "Now, this, is amazing." Well, this was amazing... I'll quote my friend Drew, "The bubbles cream in my mouth"

    The 2000 Dom Perignon is a gorgeous, seductive wine that floats on the palate with remarkable grace. Toasty aromas meld into freshly cut flowers, apricots and pears, with sweet notes of mint and licorice that linger on the long finish. This perfumed,... Robert Parker.

    Starts out round and plush, then the structure takes over. Light peach and berry flavors prevail as this plays out on the lingering finish. Give it a little time to integrate, but this should develop well. Best from 2009 through 2024. -BS Wine Spectator.

    Hellgelb mit goldenen Schimmern. Noten von Pfirsich, die schnell von Nuancen der Cashewnuss und getrockneten Kräutern abgelöst werden. Leicht getoastete Brioche ergänzen diesen Aromareichtum.

    A classic, this wine is meant for aging but very good now. Perfect for any celebration, really. Very elegant with toast and earth on the nose and deep fruit flavor. 55% Chardonnay grapes, 45% Pinot Noir grapes.

    The sensual, full-bodied 2000 vintage Dom Perignon with two beautiful Champagne flutes makes an outstanding holiday gift presentation.

    Dom Perignon Vintage 2000 is mysterious yet present, enigmatic and luminous, austere and opulent, elegant and sensual. This vintage, which opens the 21st century, couldn't possibly be a better expression of Dom Perignon's timeless
