The Moët & Chandon style is distinctive: a bright fruitiness, a seductive palate and an elegant maturity that are the result of the slow, gradual progression from vine to cellar.
Every stage in the process relies on the complementary know-how of vine growers, vat men, cellar men, oenologists and other professionals all united by the strong principles that constitute our core values, our Wine Credo.
MEET OUR CHEF DE CAVE: BENOÎT GOUEZ
As Chef de Cave, Benoît Gouez’s mastery of his art ensures champagne with the distinctive Moët & Chandon character. His style and integrity are essential to bringing out the best in each year’s harvest, in his words, “highlighting and sublimating the special characteristics of the grapes grown in Champagne.” With his consummate respect for the natural qualities of the fruit, this young, atypical Chef de Cave is the ideal guardian of the Moët & Chandon spirit.
Grand Vintage Philosophy
Each Grand Vintage is unique. Each possesses the distinctive, imitable qualities of that year’s outstanding grapes, qualities which have been elevated to their fullest expression through the savoir-faire, experience and expertise of Moët & Chandon and the House’s chef de cave.
Since 1842, the House has released 76 vintage champagnes. Moët & Chandon possesses one of the world’s most prestigious collection of vintage champagnes, all of which are safeguarded in the Grand Vintage Reserve cellars.
