As the 17th century came to an end, a monk in the famed region of Champagne reinvented tradition and gave birth to the modern bubbly.
Dom Pérignon, who lived in the Benedictine abbey in Hautvillers, is widely regarded as the Father of Modern Champagne.
Upon his discovery of new methods that produced the elixir, he famously said when first tasting it, “Come quickly, I am drinking the stars!”
Today, some 300 years later, Dom Pérignon’s secrets have been carried on and refined, resulting in the world’s favourite drink to celebrate new beginnings.
Recognising that the creation of the Benedictine monk has been used throughout the history of human creativity, the Maison recently unveiled a surprising collaboration on a limited edition vintage 2010 expression… with none other than the Queen of Creativity herself – Lady Gaga.
Despite a challenging year in the vineyards with the lowest temperatures since 1996, the grapes came in excellent condition with an elevated sweetness.
With the ingredients ripe, the meeting of icons birthed this limited-edition gift box with a vintage bottle that is fiery, expressive and bold.
