  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

A lively mousse leads to a wine that is now drier than in the past; it’s crisp and apple-juice fresh. This is tight, bright and fruity, with a refreshing, citrusy finish.

Lemon curd and glazed apricot notes mix with hints of biscuit, black raspberry and smoky mineral in this lightly creamy version, offering a lively bead and well-cut acidity. Drink now through 2018.

Impirial the best-selling Champagne brand in the world is now the nonvintage Mokt brand in the United States replacing White Star. However the American blend is sweeter than Impirial elsewhere and similar to White Star emphasizing fruitiness ripe pear and creamy apple flavors and a soft easy finish. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast.

The minerally undertow imparts a subtle, smoky note that blends with flavors of dried pineapple, biscuit, salted almond and white peach. A balanced version, with a fine bead and well-honed 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.

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 andldquo;wineandrdquo; in character than sparkling wine. At the end, vanilla, toast and more fruit come through.
