Along with cutting-edge panels for some of the world’s most recognized directors, producers and screenwriters, the festival has honored the artistic achievements of Robert Redford, Cate Blanchett, Oprah Winfrey, Jared Leto, Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bruce Dern, David O. Russell, Ben Affleck, Daniel Day-Lewis, Amy Adams, Quentin Tarantino, Jennifer Lawrence, Brie Larson, Johnny Depp, Christopher Plummer, Viola Davis, Helen Mirren and many more.
Dom Pierre Pérignon was the procurator of the Abbey of Hautvillers in Champagne from 1668 to 1715. His life’s work was guided by the single aim to create what he named: the “best wine in the world”. Today, each new vintage of Dom Pérignon is inspired by the same quest. For every vintage is a new beginning, a reinvention. Always a vintage wine, the Dom Pérignon commitment to vintages is absolute: Dom Pérignon is made from only the best grapes and is declared only in the most exceptional years, from a single year’s harvest only. Each Vintage has three Plénitudes, and is a true act of creation that is constantly renewed by Chef de Cave Richard Geoffroy.
