2004 Dom Perignon Moet et Chandon Luminous (Case - 3/75cl)
This bottling features a switch inside the punt which when pressed, illuminates the label! This might appear to be a cheap gimmick, but its true value is revealed when you find yourself within a dark room with an empty glass. Dom Perignon gets its name from the Benedictine Monk, who in 1668 became the cellar master at Benedictine abbey of Hautvillers, in Marne, Champagne. During his time at the abbey, the vineyards thrived, and he made it his ambition to create - in his own words "the best wine in the world". By adopting new techniques, he was a pioneer in wine making and is thought to be the first to blend different grape varieties to improve the quality of wine. Dom Perignon is now a hugely sought after, top quality champagne.
