The end of an era is not necessarily bad news.
While there are lots of airlines serving amazing champagne in first class, Singapore Airlines has been in a league of its own. Many passengers have enjoyed a side by side taste test of those champagnes.
There are three champagnes in Singapore Airlines' first class rotation. The airline added Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs to the first class wine selection and most flights had two of those options.
There was some significance to the addition of a third option. On November 1, 2022, Singapore Airlines will no longer serve Dom Perignon. The airline will offer the choice of Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Blanc de Blancs to all passengers in first class.
Dom Perignon is probably the champagne with the most name recognition.
I like the Taittinger Comtes de Champagne more than most vintages of Dom Perignon.
The champagne was cut from the top cabin. I think it comes down to cost. Premium alcohol is often discounted by airlines because it is a way for brands to show off their wine to an affluent consumer base.
I think Dom Perignon was getting more expensive for Singapore Airlines because they no longer wanted to show off the champagne in first class. Maybe Taittinger made Singapore Airlines a deal the company couldn't refuse? Those are the best theories I can think of.
Both Taittinger Comtes de Champagne are excellent, and have different flavors, so many passengers may appreciate being able to compare them.
Dom Perignon will no longer be included in Singapore Airlines' first class champagne lineup. The airline will be serving Taittinger Comtes de Champagne in the future. The new lineup doesn't have the same ring to it as the choice between Dom Perignon and Krug, but these are both great options.
What do you think about Dom Perignon being dropped?
