Dom Pierre Pérignon tells the story of the world's most luxurious champagne, tracing its circuitous history across four centuries, arranged in three chapters--one each for the seventeenth, eighteenth and twentieth centuries. Beautifully produced, in keeping with its subject, this page-turning luxury object unravels the myth of Dom Pérignon champagne, beginning with its namesake--the pioneering Benedictine Monk Dom Pierre Pérignon--who set out to create the best wine in the world. Offering glimpses of the champagne-infused hedonism of Louis XV's court at Versailles, Marilyn Monroe's glamorous affiliation with the beverage and Karl Lagerfeld's recent advertising campaign for the brand, this volume incorporates a spectrum of artifacts, including texts, drawings, paintings, photographs and film stills from artists and writers such as François Boucher, Denis Diderot and Jonathan Swift.
