Dom Perignon is the most exclusive and refined range of champagne that bears the imprint of Moet&Chandon. Champagne attractively combines innovation with tradition and grapes with character. What makes this assortment an exclusive one is the fact that it is produced only in the years when the grapes reach their maximum potential for obtaining the drink.

Dom Perignon is an extremely expressive champagne that reveals its elegance through color, scent, taste palate, and persistence. The seven years of aging and the painstaking process by which it is obtained are key details that allow the creation of champagne with character. The vibrant bright yellow color reveals itself in an exquisite way, the dense bubbles that are produced bring consistency and refresh the vibrant look.

How Much Does Dom Pérignon Cost?

The cost of a Dom Perignon starts at around $170 and goes to several thousands of dollars, depending on its vintage age, the place you buy it from and the year it was produced. For instance, if you don’t necessarily want a vintage wine, then you can purchase a Dom Perignon for $160 to $450 from a local wine retailer.

On the other hand, you should be prepared to pay thousands of dollars for a bottle of Dom Pérignon Vintage from years back that has peaked for more than twenty years. For example, according to a Business Insider article, a bottle of Moet & Chandon Dom Perignon by Karl Lagerfeld, which was a special edition released in 1998, was sold for around $2,000.

The vintage year is an important cost factor, but the vintage age is the one that will increase the costs. The winery will not release the champagne until it has reached its first year of maturity. When they decide to release the champagne, it has met its second or third peak of maturity, that is 15 to 25 years after the vintage label. At that time, they apply the Oenotheque label, which can greatly increase its cost.

For instance, the website Wine.com lists ten varieties of Dom Perignon, with prices that start at around $290 and go up to $500. Most of the available wines were produced in the early 2000s.

You can find Dom Perignon on Amazon as well. This retailer has many listings with prices that start at $200 for a bottle from 2006, and go up to more than $600 for a bottle from 2004.

According to CostcoWineBlog.com, you could find a 2006 Vintage of Dom Perignon at Costco at a price of $150, at the time of this writing.
