In 1446, Jean and Nicolas Moët were made nobles by King Charles VII: thus was born the famous dynasty that later was to give its name to the greatest chapter in the history of champagne. In 1743, one of the descendants of the Moët brothers, Claude Moët, who had been a wine trader in Epernay since the early 18th century, founded the Maison Moët.
His grandson, Jean Rémy Moët, who was a visionary with a pioneering spirit, transformed this trading company into the world's leading luxury brand which, for over two and a half centuries now, has been the veritable embodiment, around the world, of the genius of champagne.
Since this date of 1743, Moët & Chandon has elaborated the world's favourite champagnes. The quality of the wines gives full expression to the richness and diversity of the fabulous vineyards, the largest and most prestigious estate in the whole of Champagne, made up almost exclusively of Premiers Crus and Grands Crus. Joyous wines, with a generous... and seductive personality, distinguished by their sparkling fruitiness, their flavoursome body and their elegant maturity.
Ever loyal to the ambition of Jean-Rémy, who believed more than any other in the seductive power and the magic of champagne, Moët & Chandon is still, and more than ever before, the symbol of pleasure, grandeur and pure celebration.
