And Then Pop Bottles
Dom Pérignon is celebrating the New Year by launching a limited edition 1995 Vintage White Gold Jeroboam commemorative champagne.
Dom Pérignon's new gold-plated bubbly was first of all introduced to the rich and famous during their exploits and escapades on the edge of the Côte d'Azur. It was present during the celebrations attended by celebrities, models, and moguls. Notes of brioche and honey, mingled with fresh almond and apricot make for the deep, intricate flavor of the champagne. The modern design of the bottle has an engraving of the Dom Pérignon crest, wrapped in a sheath jacket of white gold. With only 100 bottles available worldwide, the jeroboams are being offered at The Matsuzakaya Department Store in Nagoya's Sakae-ku for about $11,005 a bottle. With one bottle already sold at Matsuzakaya, 20 bottles will be sold in Japan while others cost upwards of $40,000 in nightclubs in the United States.
