Moet and Chandon champagne
When a House has two names in its title, it's usually fair to assume that that title is one formed of diverse and intriguing history. The House of Moët and Chandon do not disappoint in this respect or any other, and their history is one born of a supreme nature that very few other houses even remotely come close to.
1446 was the year when it all started. It was in this period of time that Jean and Nicholas Moët were praised by King Charles VII. But it was when Claude Moët – a descendant of the two brothers – entered the picture that things really changed for good. A wine connoisseur with a history of trading in reputable Epernay, it was this man who created the house much later in 1743, and his son who would go on to blaze a new trail through the growing culture of luxury Champagne.
One fact, though, marks the House of Moet and Chandon as different from the rest: the size of their operation. Running the most expansive vineyard anywhere around – one with an enormous 1000 hectares of carefully cultivated land – every single grape is as gently looked after as the next, making this House one of the most experienced when it comes to offering both quality and quantity.
