Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier French Champagnes Epernay France
For over two centuries Moët et Chandon has been the leading winegrower in Champagne. It is also the largest purchaser of grapes. Moët et Chandon ensures the widest possible selection of growths to reflect all the nuances of Champagne's soil and climate. The quality of wine behind the Moët et Chandon label is due in no small part to the richness and diversity of these truly fabulous vineyards, made up almost exclusively of Premiers Crus and Grands Crus. To enjoy a glass of Moët & Chandon is to countenance pure pleasure.
Whilst the story of Moet Chandon dates back to the middle ages, it was not until an association with the Emperor Napoleon that Jean-Remy Moët became the most famous winemaker in the world, overwhelmed by international demand. To this day, spread out amongst a thousand hectares of the finest vineyards, Moet Chandon is the largest and most prestigious estate in Champagne, managing 200 of the 323 Crus of the region. The twenty eight kilometres of tranquil estate cellars are hewn out of the limestone stratas thirty metres directly below the historic estate Chateau at Epernay. Here the wines age slowly in naturally temperature controlled conditions within a network of galleries dating back to 1743.
Pale gold citrus hue, a fine effervescence. The epitome of subtlety, vinous without being green, buttery without being rich, tropically warm with a lime blossom attack. The palate is delicate and well balanced, creamy and rich, filling the tongue with highlights and leaving behind a sense of harmony, mellowness. Moët et Chandon is still today, and more than ever before, the symbol of pleasure, grandeur and pure celebration.
