Today this historic Champagne is produced from the only grapes Grand Cru of property and, because it can bear the label, must ensure aging potential of at least 30 years. Since the approach olfactory Dom Perignon is intense, with the minerality typical of the house in the foreground accompanied by smoky nuances.
