由法國修道士 Dom Pierre Pérignon創建於1668年，目前，Dom Pérignon香檳王隸屬於全球第一奢侈品集團LVMH集團。
Dom Pérignon的創始人 Dom Pierre Pérignon修道士（1638年-1715年）是位於Hautvillers本篤會修道院的一位修士，並擔任該修道院的酒窖管理人。他是最早的通過調配不同種類的葡萄來改善葡萄酒品質的人；1670年，他最先引用了軟木塞，以保持葡萄酒的新鮮，同時也採用了更加厚的玻璃酒瓶，以面對當時酒瓶很容易爆破的問題。在18至19世紀，Dom Pérignon香檳王所釀造的香檳酒受到了當代王室貴族們的認可和喜愛，並在法國國王路易十四的宮廷上享用。隨後在它也成為了自由主義精神的代表，並在英國攝政時期穩固了其地位。

Dom Pérignon is a brand of vintage Champagne produced by the Champagne house Moët & Chandon and serves as that house's prestige champagne. It is named after Dom Pérignon, a Benedictine monk who was an important quality pioneer for Champagne wine but who, contrary to popular myths, did not discover the champagne method for making sparkling wines.
Dom Pérignon (1638–1715) was a monk and cellar master at the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers. He pioneered a number of winemaking techniques around 1670—being the first to blend grapes in such a way as to improve the quality of wines, balance one element with another in order to make a better whole, and deal with a number of their imperfections; perfecting the art of producing clear white wines from black grapes by clever manipulation of the presses; enhancing the tendency of Champagne wines to retain their natural sugar in order to naturally induce secondary fermentation in the Spring; being a master at deciding when to bottle these wines in order to capture the bubble. He also introduced corks (instead of wood), which were fastened to bottles with hemp string soaked in oil in order to keep the wines fresh and sparkling, and used thicker glass in order to strengthen the bottles (which were prone to explode at that time). The development of sparkling wines as the main style of production in Champagne occurred progressively in the 19th century, more than a century after Dom Pérignon's death.

The 2008 Dom Pérignon continues to show very well, offering up a pretty bouquet of Anjou pear, fresh peach, citrus oil, fresh pastry, smoke and iodine. On the palate, it's full-bodied, lively and incisive, with an elegantly textural attack and a creamy core of fruit that's underpinned by a bright but nicely integrated spine of acidity. The finish is long, saline and well-defined. As I wrote earlier this year, this is the finest Dom Pérignon since 1996, Richard Geoffroy's push for additional ripeness working well with the late-maturing, high-acid vintage. While it can be appreciated young, the 2008 will really start to blossom with five or six years of bottle age. (The Wine Advocate)
