  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

Tasting Notes - On the sweet side, yet there's an interesting array of flavors. Graphite, candied berry, hazelnut and honey tones get a lift from the acidity.

Nectar Imperial is a delicious expression of the unique Moet & Chandon style. A style that distinguishes itself by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. Its assemblage, completed by 20–30% of reserve wines selected specially to enhance its intensity, richness and consistency, reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grape varieties: the structure of the Pinot Noir (40–50%), the fleshiness of the Pinot Meunier (30–40%) and the freshness of the Chardonnay (10–20%). Dosage of 4.5 g/L. A rich nose with the burst of exotic fruits (pineapple, mango), the roundness of stone fruits (Mirabelle plum, apricot) and a slight hint of vanilla. A voluptuous palate combining creaminess, the captivating density of exotic fruits and mango, the silky firmness of stone fruits and the brisk freshness of grapefruit notes.

Light gold. Bright orange, candied lemon and peach on the nose, with a faint toffee note. Broad pear and peach flavors, with deeper notes of marzipan and guava. Plenty sweet but also balanced and clean, with good weight and a long, lush finish. For the style, this is delicious.

A good benchmark for a sweeter Champagne. In fact, not extravagantly sweet, because the fruit remains fresh, giving pear and apricot flavors, and a pure line in fresh acidity.
