Dom Perignon 1998 Rose Vintage Champagne has aromas of orange peel and dried fruits. A lovely texture with balance and sophistication with a vibrant finish. Dom Perignon was the 17th century Benedictine monk who has gone down in history as the person who invented champagne. His name was originally registered by Eugene Mercier. He sold the brand name to Moet & Chandon, which used it as the name for its prestige cuvee, which was first released in 1937.
