  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

Impandeacute;rial, the best-selling Champagne brand in the world, is now the nonvintage Moandeuml;t brand in the United States, replacing White Star. However, the American blend is sweeter than Impandeacute;rial elsewhere, and similar to White Star, emphasizing fruitiness, ripe pear and creamy apple flavors and a soft, easy finish.

Well-balanced, exhibiting flavors of light toast, Gala apple, honey and ginger, with smoke and mineral notes underscoring hints of tropical pineapple and tangerine fruit. Therersquo;s lovely texture, with a firm backbone of juicy acidity. Drink now through 2018.

Tart red-fruit scents give this a vinous profile, fragrant with cranberry, root vegetables and ginger. It finishes clean, with cool limestone minerality. Cellar this for a year to let the flavors develop further.

Creamy, almost butterscotch aromas are followed by a soft palate, but one where the flavors are fruit-driven, green plums and pears dominating. With some richness, it is more ldquo;winerdquo; in character than sparkling wine. At the end, vanilla, toast and more fruit come through.

A fruity style, with berry, candied citrus and floral aromas and flavors. This seems a touch sweeter than its peers, but that may be the fruit. Has a delicate profile.
