With another monastic connection, this picture sees Richard Geoffroy, chef de cave at Dom Pérignon, also with his hands clasped as though he is praying. Richard is standing in the church where the French Benedictine monk, Dom Pérignon, is buried. As is well known, Dom Pérignon played a large part in the development of the Champagne winemaking process. Colin says this image is meant to be more focused on Richard than the brand Dom Pérignon.
