Mo√ęt & Chandon
Moet & Chandon is the largest and the most famous producer of champagne in the world. The history of this globally renowned brand goes back to 1743 when the French winemaker Claude Moët founded the company formerly called Moët et Cie (Moët & co.).
Even though Claude had some business success, the true rise of Moët began in the late 18th century when his grandson Jean-Remy Moët took over the company. He was the one who turned his grandfather’s legacy into a symbol of luxury, pleasure and prestige.
The champagnes of this house quickly gained favor among the political elite of the time, and were enjoyed by many world rulers, such as Russian Emperor Alexander II, Austrian Emperor Francis II, British Queen Victoria, and many others. One of the biggest fans of Moët’s champagnes was the French Emperor Napoleon, who often enjoyed lavish feasts on the Moët estate. In his honor, the pride of the house and the best-selling champagne bears the name of Brut Impérial.
