Behind the Label
- The Maison
A long-lasting legacy
The Moët maison was founded by wine trader Claude Moët in 1743, but it was his grandson, Jean-Rémy, who, together with Pierre-Gabriel Chandon, built the maison’s reputation. They released the first Moët vintage in 1840, and in 1869 the now-acclaimed Brut Impérial label was born.
Mastering the art of making champagne
Led by Cellar Master Benoît Gouez, Moët & Chandon winemakers are meticulous, gently pressing grapes to ensure only the purest juice is extracted to produce a clean, crisp and fruity wine. Champagnes are then aged for twice as long as the legal minimum to add complexity and depth.
