Of course, keeping the wine once in the bottle was one thing, but storing it so it could remain in the bottle for much longer was a harder task. Yet this seemed to happen with some ease, as, thanks to the chalk pits nearby, this obstacle soon became yet another tried-and-trusted step in the process.
The latest Vintage from this House is the 2007 variety – made from a wine selected from the year 1999. And Dom Perignon are certainly no stranger to attention when it comes to their Vintages. A fine example would be the event which occurred in 2004, when 17 bottles of the infamous 1921 Vintage were sold at Christie's and found to contain a bouquet including vanilla and praline. Far from being just any bottles, these ones came from the home of the founder of the American Tobacco Company.
