Fruity, direct and challenging. Moët & Chandon's fame is based on the consistent and specific style of the champagne house. The name recognition is immense and the style of the house can be captured in one word, namely COMPLETE. This is due to the good coherence, fine balance. The Brut Impérial is composed of around 150 different wines, extracted from chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier and from all parts of Champagne. It is a champagne without a harvest year, because the assembly also contains an important part of the reserve - beautifully aged wines from older years. Brut Impérial refers to the pleasantly dry taste (Brut) and to Emperor Napoléon's long-standing preference for Moët & Chandon champagne (Impérial, the perfect combination of alcohol, sugar and acids).
The Nectar Impérial is a Demi-Sec champagne with a slightly sweet taste that is described as an almost sensual, exotic and rich wine. The sweet taste is caused by a dosage of 40 to 45 grams of sugar per liter. All three grape varieties are of course represented in the assembly, but the noble pinot noir accounts for the lion's share. In get glass the wine has a nice fresh striking rich, golden color. In the nose the Demi Sec is pronounced with exotic fruit and candied fruit, honey and mild spice tones. The taste is powerful, concentrated, light, sweet, rich and full of a fine mousse. Not too sweet, by the way, but soft, rich and full - almost sensual. Because the flavors of candied fruit, mild spices and honey come to the fore, this champagne is easy to combine with dishes such as foie gras or blue vein cheese.

Moët & Chandon is one of the largest and, last but not least, the most famous Champagne houses in the world. Moët & Chandon was founded in 1743. Dom Perignon and Brut Imperial are two of the champagne house's best-known labels. Moët & Chandon has built up a very good reputation for its consistent quality and recurring style. The holding company LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) owns the champagne house.
Moët & Chandon Champagne is now one of the largest producers of sparkling wines in the world. The company has 34,041 hectares in Champagne, 48,000 hectares in Burgundy, and 120,000 hectares in Bordeaux and California. Only 13% of these are privately owned; the rest are vineyards owned by owners under contract. In Champagne, 39% of the vineyards are Pinot Noir, 32% Pinot Meunier and 29% Chardonnay. Of the Champagne's vineyards, 1150 hectares, the majority (of course) have grand cru or premier cru status. In short: the best quality. Grapes come from all areas of Champagne: the Vallée de la Marne, Montagne de Reims, Aube and Côtes de Blancs.
Moët & Chandon aims to offer the same taste and quality for the Impérial wines every year. That is why the blend of wines is different every year! In this way, influences of the vintage are eliminated. To get that taste the same every year, basic wines are used. The grapes of each plot at the disposal of the company are vinified separately. This is done in press houses near the vineyards, one of which has recently opened in Epernay, with a capacity of 356,000 hectolitres. In total, after the harvest, the company can dispose of 6000 bits of wine from one year; those 6000 'little' bits are combined with 100-150 base wines. Add to that the wines they have leftover from older years, which can also be used for blends, and you now understand what a gigantic task the nine winemakers of the company have. It usually takes about four to five months for the final blend to be tuned for an Imperial! The nine winemakers are also helped by measuring equipment and chemical analyses.
MEET is the best-selling and best-known champagne worldwide. Every one and a half seconds, a bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut is uncorked somewhere in the world. Not surprising, even completely deserved, when you taste the consistently excellent quality. The Impérial Brut is composed of about 150 different wines, extracted from chardonnay, pinot noir, and pinot meunier, and all parts of Champagne. It is champagne without a vintage because the assembly also contains an important part of vins de réserve - beautifully matured wines from older years. Imperial Brut refers to the pleasant
dry taste (Brut) and the long-standing preference of Emperor Napoleon for the champagne of Moët & Chandon (Impérial).
