The Story

Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage champagnes, unlike most champagnes, are made from the grapes of a single exceptional year. Each Grand Vintage is unique. Each possesses the distinctive, imitable qualities of that year’s outstanding grapes, qualities which have been elevated to their fullest expression through the savoir-faire, experience and expertise of Moët & Chandon and the House’s chef de cave.
Since 1842, the House has released 69 vintage champagnes. Moët & Chandon possesses one of the world’s most prestigious collection of vintage champagnes, all of which are safeguarded in the Grand Vintage Reserve cellars.

Vintage 2004

Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the cellar master’s personal, free interpretation in service of the singular qualities of that year’s grapes. Grand Vintage 2004 perfectly embodies the three essential values of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit:freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines, respect for the individuality of each vintage for finely aged champagnes which stand out for their maturity, complexity and charisma.

Plentiful, in excellent health and beautifully ripe were the key characteristics of the 2004 harvest. Throughout the entire growing season the weather was unusually mild and particularly favourable to thriving vines and exquisitely mature grapes. After a somewhat dry spring the vines flourished in the early summer rains and subsequent hot sunny weather. Very warm temperatures later in the season created the ideal conditions for a harvest which was both extremely abundant and at the perfect stage of ripeness.
