    Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 1993

    The growing season in 1993 was characterised by temperature fluctuations, meaning that when it came time to harvest, careful selection of the pinot noir (50%), chardonnay (30%) and meunier (20%) grapes was critical. Disgorged in November 2011, this champagne proved to have a particularly attractive, fresh and fruity flavour.

A sought-after vintage

Royal beginnings

The fact that Grand Vintage 1993 marks a milestone anniversary – the maison’s 250th year – calls to mind the life and times of Claude Moët, who founded maison Moët in 1743 and went on to become a resounding success in the years that followed. A pioneering and visionary thinker, in the 1730s Moët was one of the wine merchants chosen to serve the Royal Court of France. And as the first winemaker in the region to produce only sparkling wine, it was not long before the maison’s champagne was the most sought-after in all of Europe.

The 1993 vintage shares certain seasonal characteristics with the 1990, 1976 and 1947 vintages, yet its unique qualities have made it an in-demand item on the secondary market. The champagne featured alongside the 1914 vintage at an auction to commemorate Moët & Chandon’s 270th anniversary in 2013, where in total 174 magnums and three jeroboams were sold to celebrate the maison’s founding year in 1743. 

Success despite late-season rain

In Champagne in 1993, mild weather during winter and spring led to early budding. This, together with warm temperatures through to August, pointed to a bountiful harvest. The crop made good on its promise, save for the torrential rains in the later stages of the season, which necessitated careful grape selection in the vineyard. The result was that the season’s white base wines, which would later be included in the assemblage of the 1993 vintage, exhibited a fresh, fruity flavour. 

Food pairing:
Seafood will enhance this fresh champagne

Starter

Start your meal with delicate morsels of buttery lobster in a citrus infusion.

Main

Match with a creamy risotto packed with hearty morel mushrooms.
