Moët & Chandon:

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.

  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

Bright crimson colour with fine beads that last long, nicely befitting a supposed natural Brut that has aged over the years. Rich in grapes and aftertaste, whilst giving a toasty, oaky depth that makes for its age. Splendid!

Good champagne from Moet & Chandon. We certainly like this one more than the oh-so-en-vogue Veuve Clicquot, but less than the M & C Nectar Imperial

Rich salmon color with strawberry aroma with a touch of dough. Fruity flavors (strawberry and raspberry). Good but not my style.

Bright acidity for being 10 years old drinking well but I see a future in this wine hold for a few years and revisit. nice lemon colour slightly more complex and acidic than the imperial N.V.

Sleek acidity trims the sails of this otherwise rich and expansive Champagne, keeping it finely balanced and racy throughout. Flavors of roasted hazelnut, crushed blackberry, ripe apricot, honey and ginger biscuit glide on the silky palate to a saline-tinged finish. Drink now through 2029.

This offers great balance between the freshest fruit and toasty maturity. That poise gives this impressive Champagne a tension, a high wire act that works superbly. It is rich, full of fruit but also with great depth. It will certainly age, so drink now or hold through 2019.

Vintage Champagne is always the ultimate expression of a producer. This shows the approachable character of Moët wines, while adding intensity and complexity. It is taut and minerally, with a spiced apple note and nervy acidity. It’s now ready to drink, but it also has good aging potential.

The 2004 Brut Grand Vintage bursts from the glass with layers of rich, tropical fruit. A big, boisterous wine, the 2004 is not shy, that’s for sure. Expressive yellow fleshed fruits, smoke, spices and pastry are some of the many nuances that take shape in this broad-shouldered wine. The 2004 settles down a bit with air, but never loses its essentially extroverted, flashy personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2019.

Minerally overtones accent flavors of candied black cherry, black currant and gumdrop that remain fresh, with a lively bead and well-cut acidity carrying accents of lemon zest, biscuit and fresh herb. Elegant yet expressive. Drink now through 2020.

Vivid gold with a strong bead. Lemon meringue, cherry pit and smoky minerals on the nose, along with a suave, nutty undertone. Fleshy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are firmed by a bitter fruit skin quality and sweetened by floral honey. Less rich than I would expect from this vintage, with good finishing lift and cling.
