MOET AND CHANDON CHAMPAGNE
In 1743, Claude Moet founded his Champagne house which rapidly became highly sought after by the courts of Europe. In 1792, Jean-Remy Moet took over the house and established the world’s first international luxury brand – he invented champagne as a universal symbol of luxury and pleasure. The quality of Moet & Chandon champagnes is a result of its unique winemaking process and the unparalleled richness of its fabulous vineyard – the largest estate in Champagne, providing Moet & Chandon with access to the most superior and diverse source of grapes.
Through its vineyard and its additional purchase Moet & Chandon is assured the largest range of crus: 200 out of 323 in the Champagne region. The distinct personality of Moet & Chandon Champagnes is a result of the harmonious union of the 3 grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. A 28km tranquil network of chalk cellars are located 30m directly below the historic Maison in Epernay. The cellars are carved out of the great mass of marble chalk inherent to the region, with some galleries dating back to 1743 when Moet & Chandon was founded.
Moet & Chandon is enjoyed the world over, for every fabulous celebration.
