Today, Dom Pérignon announces an experience that elevates the worlds of gastronomy and fine wine, marrying them through a creative play on texture, senses, precision: the notion of tactility. Tactility is the aesthetic character that is revealed in Dom Pérignon’s two new vintages, perfectly embodying a journey into the senses of touch and trace, key elements in Chef Mallmann’s culinary masterpiece.

In a full take-over of an undisclosed private estate in the Hamptons, Dom Pérignon will launch an immersive and ephemeral adventure with an exclusive bookable experience each evening from July 19-21, 2024. The event will unveil the highly anticipated latest vintages, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2015 and Vintage 2006 Plénitude 2 (P2), alongside culinary phenomenon Francis Mallmann, to explore the unexpected yet harmonious nature of the champagne.

Upon arrival to the 21-acre estate, guests will first embark on the emblematic Dom Pérignon solo tasting journey amidst the tranquil soundscape & natural scenery. After experiencing the singularity of the new vintages, Dom Pérignon & Mallmann will provide rare access to an unparalleled gastronomic experience. The Argentinian Chef known for his distinctive 7-Fire cooking technique, took inspiration from the dynamic Champagnes and realized a menu that mirrors their contrasting profiles. Each dish, presenting an invitation to the complexity and prestige inherent in a Dom Pérignon Vintage.

“Taking inspiration from Dom Pérignon’s latest creations, I’m thrilled to guide guests through a culinary journey where textures and flavors harmonize in unexpected ways,” shares Chef Francis Mallmann. “Each dish will be an invitation to explore the nuanced depths of these spectacular vintages.”

“This experience with Chef Mallmann allows us to create a space where we celebrate the balance found in opposing forces, inviting guests to savor the convergence of exceptional culinary and champagne artistry while surrounded by the stunning ocean backdrop,” says Vincent Chaperon, Chef de Cave of Dom Pérignon. “This Dom Pérignon encounter opens the door to a world of endless possibilities, brought to life through the rare prestige of our latest Vintages.”

The gastronomic journey will commence with the Dom Pérignon Vintage 2015, distinct in its unwavering presence and characterized by its assertive, structured, and provoking profile. As guests delve deeper into Chef’s meticulously crafted menu, the full tactile nature of Dom Pérignon is unveiled. Transitioning seamlessly to the Vintage 2006 Plénitude 2, the palate experiences a new world of viscosity, suppleness, and texture variations which enhance the sense of taste with each sip. Together, each perfectly-timed course will uncover the unique aesthetic and values of the two vintages, while accentuating the champagne’s harmonious and multi-dimensional qualities.

Chaperon adds, “The Dom Pérignon Vintage 2015 and Vintage 2006 Plénitude 2 are paradoxes. With each sip, they extend an invitation into the very essence of tactility, where opposing forces harmonize, capturing the pinnacle of our craftsmanship and the spirit of their time.”

Dom Pérignon Vintage 2015

Born under the auspices of a luminous year, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2015 is at the same time deep and tactile as if the extreme character of the year, with soils dried out by intense sun, had transmitted something mysterious tactile, it caresses with an interior generosity, the generosity of ripe matter that gradually opens to floral notes.

Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 Plénitude 2 (P2)

Now, after seven additional years of maturation, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 has reached its Plénitude 2, a new era in its expression.

Maturation time is essential for Dom Pérignon. It is organic, active, and energetic. Time prolongs all that nature has to offer by opening up a whole new space for the winemaker. For a given Dom Pérignon Vintage, it often brings an unpredicted, surprising and mysterious element, which complements it, and traces a new step in its harmony.

Vintage 2006 has the distinctive ability to become refined over time, to become more precise, to reach a higher elevation. In the seclusion of Dom Pérignon’s cellars, the working lees have brought it to its second Plénitude, a streamlined version of itself. The mouthfeel is marked by a more present saline tension. Bitterness has gained in subtleness and delicacy, bringing balance to the generosity with which 2006 was born.
