The Terroirs of Moët & Chandon

Moët & Chandon's vineyards thrive on the terroirs nestled in the heart of the Champagne region, known for their exceptional geology and climate. These unique factors contribute to the distinctive character of the wines produced by the renowned brand.

The Grape Varieties

In the meticulous crafting of Moët & Chandon champagnes, three main grape varieties take centre stage: Pinot Noir, Meunier, and Chardonnay. Each grape brings its own distinct characteristics to the blend, resulting in a symphony of flavours and aromas.

The Harvest and its Magic

When the time is ripe, the entire region comes alive to partake in the harvest, reaping the rewards of a year's labour. The dedicated teams at Moët & Chandon bear witness to this enchanting moment, where nature's bounty is transformed into liquid gold.

The Art of Blending

The true artistry of Moët & Chandon lies in the skilful blending of wines from diverse areas, grape varieties, and even different years. This delicate process, guided by experts such as Benoît Gouez, Marie Christine Osselin, and Amine Ghanem, ensures that each bottle embodies the unmistakable Moët & Chandon style.

The Maturation Journey

Hidden deep within the cellars, the bottles embark on a transformative journey of maturation. Time works its magic, bestowing complexity and depth upon the wines, as they patiently await their moment of revelation.

The Riddling Process

Following the maturation period, the bottles undergo a meticulous riddling process. This unique gesture involves carefully turning and tilting the bottles to gather the sediment in the neck, preparing them for the next stage of their evolution.

The Disgorgement and Final Touch

After the maturation and riddling, the bottle reaches the crucial moment of disgorgement. Here, the sediment is expelled, and a dosage is added to the wine, perfectly balancing its flavour. Finally, the bottle is sealed with a cork, marking the completion of its champagne journey.

The Grand Vintage Collection

Every Grand Vintage produced by Moët & Chandon is a unique masterpiece. Each bottle encapsulates the exceptional qualities of the grapes harvested in that particular year. Through the skill, experience, and expertise of the House's chef de cave and the Moët & Chandon team, these qualities are elevated to their fullest expression.

Since 1842, Moët & Chandon has proudly released 76 vintage champagnes. The House boasts one of the world's most prestigious collections of vintage champagnes, carefully safeguarded in the esteemed Grand Vintage Reserve cellars.
