Learn why a bottle of Moet is more than a flash bottle of Champagne, its history values and of course taste. In 2011 the Royal household gave approval for the Moët & Chandon Diamond Jubilee Impérial bottles – served at the Jubilee Garden Party – to also be made available to the public via selected retailers for the first time.
This allowed the Champagne house to communicate their longstanding Royal connection more widely.
Moët & Chandon was first granted a Royal Warrant in 1893 by Queen Victoria and it was reaffirmed in 1955 by Queen Elizabeth II.
Moët & Chandon created exclusive cuvées for both the Silver and Golden Jubilee celebrations. The new 2004 Grand Vintage Champagne will be launched later this year, joining the 2002, which is currently on the market.
It was recently announced that Moët & Chandon was to become the official Champagne of the Lawn Tennis Association, reinforcing the brand’s association with world class tennis.
This gives the brand significant opportunities at the LTA’s three summer grass court events – the Aegon Championships, the Aegon Classic and Aegon International.

The Moet Chandon History
In 1446, Jean and Nicolas Moët were ennobled by King Charles VII. A progeny of the Moët was born. It will give later his name to the greatest saga in the history of the Champagne. In 1743, Claude Moët, wine merchant in Epernay, founded the house Moët & Chandon. His grandson, Jean Rémy Moët with his visionary and pioneering spirit, will transform this trade company into the first international luxury brand. For more than 2 centuries, MOËT & CHANDON has symbolized and shared, all around the world, the genius of the Champagne.
For over a quarter of a millennium, the renowned French winemaker has been sharing the magic of champagne across the globe. Every glass overflows with the House’s hallmark values of history, generosity, savoir-faire, success, boldness and elegance—values still at the heart of its global appeal.
Toward the end of the 18th century, Jean-Remy Moët, grandson of founder Claude Moët, became famous as the man who introduced champagne to the world. The important figures of the era, from the Marquise de Pompadour to Talleyrand to Napoleon quickly fell in love with the House’s effervescent wine. Moët & Chandon was soon the icon of success and elegance that it remains to this day.
