Vintage Celebration Champagne Gift Basket
Celebrate an engagement, new home, new baby, promotion or graduation with a bottle of Dom Pérignon! The Grand Achievement Basket displays a current vintage bottle of Dom Pérignon Champagne in a sparkling container, accompanied by gourmet chocolates, crackers, and smoked salmon to pair. Whether you are there in person or in spirit, your recipient will see that you put thought and effort into giving the perfect gift; another perfect pair is our Vintage Celebration Champagne Gift Basket and its new home.
Your recipients will enjoy the candied fruit, toasted notes and hint of licorice on the nose of the current Dom Pérignon Vintage. The palate is thrillingly complex and silky, finishing with a spiced note and a touch of briny sea bitterness. The warm and dry weather of the season helped to mature the grapes much more than usual, giving this vintage a unique and edgy character. Classic food pairings include lobster, crab, caviar, strawberries and chocolate.
Dom Pérignon uses grapes grown in a single year to express each growing season’s unique character. The champagne house is committed to only releasing vintages from grape harvests that meet its ideal, and each and every bottle of Dom Pérignon is vintage! About equal parts Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are used to create each vintage. The traditional méthode champenoise, in which the wine undergoes a secondary in-bottle fermentation, is used to create Dom Pérignon. Winemakers then add a combination of sugar and yeast, also known as “liqueur de tirage”, then bottle the wine. During the aging process, the yeast consumes the sugar, creating the delightful bubbly fizz that we’ve all come to know and love.
Dom Pérignon was named after the 17th century Benedictine monk, who historically is known as the man who “invented” Champagne. Dom Pérignon’s name was purchased by the Moët & Chandon house, which used it as the name for its prestige cuvée, first released in 1937.
