2004 Dom Perignon Jeff Koons
Special Limited Edition


What do you get when you bring one of the most iconic, irreverent artists of the last quarter-century together with the renown of one of Champagne's greatest estates?

The Dom PĂ©rignon Jeff Koons Edition. In bottles playfully reinvented as only Jeff Koons could.

Dom PĂ©rignon Jeff Koons Edition offers a masterpiece-level gift box worthy of the opulence encased within.

This is the ultimate gift for this holiday season.

Jeff Koons is hot - His The Balloon Dog (Orange) recently sold for $58.4 million, the most expensive artwork by a living artist ever to sell at auction.

There could be no collaboration more fitting (or flaunting) than the one between these two powerhouses: The gift box evokes Koons' world-renowned, multi-million dollar sculpture "Balloon Venus," but the wine inside is classic Dom PĂ©rignon. The playful iconoclasm with which Koons recasts an art historical icon is an apt celebration of the impressive sexiness of Dom PĂ©rignon.

Of course, the truth is in the bottle. And 2004 Dom PĂ©rignon has no trouble delivering on this front. The very first time I tasted the 2004, I immediately had a deep fondness for it as it invoked memories of when I first started collecting Champagne in the late eighties.

I shared this with Dom Pérignon's wildly insightful and charismatic chef de cave, Richard Geoffroy, who agreed with me and narrowed his comparison to the 1975 Dom Pérignon, a true sleeper DP. FYI, the 1975 Oenothèque version now goes for $1,700+.

Antonio Galloni is also bullish on this classically styled vintage. He writes, "The 2004 Dom PĂ©rignon continues to develop beautifully. A vibrant, focused Champagne... There is a lot to like in the glass." That's certainly spot-on.

2004 Dom PĂ©rignon has a quiet depth of complexity and a dancing electricity cloaked in a perfect measure of fruit. This is DP for me. While recent riper and epic vintages, like 96 and 02, have blown me away, 04 marks a return to the impeccably judged detail and quiet regal elegance that I always look for in Dom PĂ©rignon.

It's worth repeating that with the holidays rapidly approaching, DP Koons makes an utterly fantastic gift. The presentation is gorgeous, the wine inside is classic Dom PĂ©rignon in all its sleek elegance.

I’ve always loved Dom Pérignon - the seductive complexity, the intensity, the precision of the wine itself juxtaposed with a sexy kind of edge, a bit of a playful spirit. The 2004 Dom Pérignon Jeff Koons beautifully captures this spirit inside and out. This limited edition Dom Pérignon is guaranteed to turn heads.
