Edward Kaukoranta (born 1985) is a Dom Pérignon enthusiast with 20 years of experience. After tasting the 1992 Œnothèque in 2008, he dove deep into exploring mature champagnes. This led to the first book dedicated to Dom Pérignon. Kaukoranta has tasted nearly every vintage featured, some over 50 times, and photographed his collection of empty bottles. His work offers a unique, independent perspective on fine and rare champagnes, as he personally purchased all featured bottles and self-published his book, Drinking Dom Pérignon 1921 to 2013.

‘The books that taught me about wine were about places and people. It’s the history and stories about a wine that bring it to life and make it worth talking about.’
