  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

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 “wine” in character than sparkling wine. At the end, vanilla, toast and more fruit come through.

Moët Imperial is the House’s iconic Champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies the unique Moët & Chandon style. A style that distinguishes itself by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. Its assemblage reflects the diversity and complimentarity of the three grape varieties: the body of the Pinot Noir (45–50%), the suppleness of the Pinot Meunier (35–40%) and the finesse of the Chardonnay (10–20%). Dosage: 13 g/L A sparkling nose with the intensity of green apple and citrus fruit, the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers, and the elegance of blond mature notes: brioche, cereals, fresh nuts. A palate combining generosity and subtlety with the delicious generosity of white fruits (pear, peach and apple), the alluring caress of fine bubbles and the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and gooseberry nuances.

Honeyed, floral, vanilla and toast aromas. Silky palate of lemon and toasted oak melded with sweet, creamy vanilla. Light, sweet, citrus notes carry the finish.

Impérial, the best-selling Champagne brand in the world, is now the nonvintage Moët brand in the United States, replacing White Star. However, the American blend is sweeter than Impérial 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. There’s lovely texture, with a firm backbone of juicy acidity. Drink now through 2018.

Tasting Notes - Golden yellow with shades of amber. Aroma of flowers, hazelnuts, and biscuits. Soft with a fruit finish, evoking the peach.

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.
