Moët has been associated with the sparkle of success and glamour ever since the House was founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. Moët et Chandon is now the leading vine-grower in Champagne, with the most extensive vineyards. Of their 1,150 hectares 50% are grands crus and 25% are premiers crus. Their cellars are located 10 to 30-meters under the chalky soil near Epernay. Moët & Chandon's cellars are the largest within the Champagne region, spanning 28km (aprox 17.4 miles). In this legendary subterranean labyrinth, the forces of nature have come together to create a uniquely ideal setting for the metamorphosis of choice fruit into the House's luxurious wine.
Brut Imperial is an extremely accomplished assemblage of over 200 crus, creating a perfect balance of the three champagne grape varieties (30% to 40% Pinot Noir, 30% to 40% Pinot Meunier, 20% to 30% Chardonnay). The use of 20% to 30% of carefully selected reserve wines complete the assemblage and enhance its maturity, complexity and consistency.
