Moet & Chandon Champagne NV
Imported Sparkling »
Moet Chandon Imperial Brut is the classical and defining French champagne. A harmonious cuveé of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Pale yellow with shades of green. Subtly vineous aroma with a vine and lime blossom attack. Delicate and well-balanced palate, it leaves behind a sense of harmony and mellowness.The Brut Impérial (the world's biggest selling Champagne) can readily be drunk an an aperitif or throughout a meal to dessert. Moet & Chandon is one of the world's largest manufacturers of champagne and the company dates to 1743 when Claude Moët began shipping his product from the Champagne region of France to Paris. The reign of Louis XV coincided with an increased demand for sparkling wine. Moët expanded rapidly and by the end of the eighteenth century was exporting the drink all over Europe and to the United States. Claude's grandson Jean-Rémy Moët took the house to international prominence catering to such elite clientele as Thomas Jefferson and Napoleon Bonaparte. Chandon was added to the company name when Jean-Rémy Moët turned over half the company to his son-in-law Pierre-Gabriel Chandon de Briailles in 1832, and half to his son Victor Moët.
