  Moet & Chandon is one of the most well-known luxury champagne producers in the word. With over 2,500 acres of vineyards and an annual champagne production of 26,000,000 bottles, Moet & Chandon lives, breathes, and, of course, drinks champagne. The House of Moet was founded in 1743 by Claude Moet, but it wasn’t until his grandson, Jean-Remy Moet, took over that the company really took off and became an international luxury brand. Jean-Remy Moet strove to bring the pleasure of champagne to everyone he could, forming partnerships with both French and international clients on a regular basis. When Jean-Remy Moet sold the House of Moet to his son Victor Moet and his son-in-law Pierre-Gabriel Chandon in 1833, the ensuing partnership formed Moet & Chandon. Shortly after the new branding, in 1842, Moet & Chandon released its first vintage champagne, leading the way to even higher-quality champagne. In 1921, they produced their first prestige cuvée under the brand Dom Pérignon, named after a Benedictine monk who was an important pioneer for champagne. The first vintage released for sale was in 1936, and today it is managed by winemaker Richard Geoffroy. Read less

Refreshing and well-structured, with an expanding evolution of flavor in the mouth. The floral, tart cherry aroma turns to red fruit character on a clean and crisp palate. Light smoke lingers in the finish.

A bold, pure nose of strawberries and cherries is bright and lively, spiced with a faint green-herb note. A bit soft and even sweet-tasting but that only adds to its easy-drinking charm.

A light, copper-colored rosé, this basks in light, sweet red fruit and flowers. It's soft, but keeps its sweetness in check, ending with cedary finesse. For seafood sausage.

Red cassis and roasted yeast scents play tight against the spicy acidity. Quite young, the sweet fruit and tough acidity should meld and soften with tiem. One judge likened this to a pre-made Kir Royale.

Traditional but exciting style of dry rosé, designed for dinner. Has a copper color, toasty aromas, firm texture and subtle fruit and spice flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2001.

At first blush, the bouquet is rich and impenetrable, but when it opens citrus comes on strong. Chewy apple fruit with some Pinot heft define the palate, while licorice and anise add character to the finish. Plump, round and a pleasure to drink. Very substantive.

A medium-bodied rosé, with berry and spice flavors supported by a firm, chalky texture. Very good balance and harmony, with moderate length. Drink now.
