The Story

Moët & Chandon Impérial is a complete, generous and dynamic Champagne made of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. Moët Impérial is the House’s iconic Champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies Moët & Chandon’s unique style- a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.

Created from more than 100 different wines, of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines specially selected to enhance its maturity, complexity and constancy, the assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varietals :
 

The body of Pinot Noir: 
30 to 40%
The suppleness of Pinot Meunier: 
30 to 40%
The finesse of Chardonnay: 
20 to 30%
Dosage: 9 g/litre

Wine Information

The pioneering spirit has always defined our brand, in every arena from viniculture to new ways of celebrating with champagne. It all began with our founder Claude Moët’s vision of transforming a prestigious but little known regional wine into a favourite of cosmopolitans and courtiers throughout Europe. His grandson Jean-Rémy Moët set out to conquer the market and soon transformed Moët & Chandon into an international symbol of celebration, accomplishing his lifelong goal of “sharing the magic of champagne with the world.”
Innovation has been our watchword ever since, making the world’s most glamorous wine new and exciting for each generation

Creating new ways of celebrating with champagne is a hallmark of Moët & Chandon. Among our first emblematic gestures were the sabering of bottles and the christening of ships. The 20th century saw the arrival of yet more pioneering gestures that are still favourite traditions today.

Did you know, for example, that the exuberant spray of champagne after a sports victory originated at the 24 Hours of Le Mans car race in 1966 when champion Jo Siffert showered his cheering fans with a bottle of Moët? The champagne pyramid, the dazzling cascade of sparkling bubbles that lights up glamorous parties and receptions around the world? Moët created that overflowing symbol of festivity as well.

New technology combined with the best of traditional craftsmanship is helping us ensure that the legendary quality and style of our champagnes never falters. As nature is at the very heart of Moët, our latest advances in sustainable viniculture to preserve and protect the environment are among our proudest accomplishments.

Inventing delectably new ways of sharing magic with the world is one of most cherished commitments!

Throughout our long history, Moët & Chandon has pioneered trends in bottling, glasses and exclusive, personalised editions of our champagnes.

In our day, the Moët mini-flute format is now a must on the red carpets of international film festivals and Moët Imperial bottles personalised with Swarovski crystals bring a special touch to exclusive events. Our latest innovation, Moët Ice Imperial, the very first champagne especially created to be enjoyed on ice, brings our fans an all new, uniquely refreshing champagne experience.
