Since then, Moët & Chandon have grown by acquiring other champagne estates, selling them forward and keeping their prestigious vineyards. Such large-scale production could only operate under the leadership of a truly superb Chef de Caves and in Benoît Gouez, Moët have one of the best. With a ten-man oenologist team led by chief Dom Pérignon winemaker Richard Geoffroy, Benoît has access to the most academic minds and palates in the region, no doubt a huge driving factor behind his success. Now proprietors to the largest amount of land: some 1,190-hecatres of rich limestone soil, and the largest extent of cellars: over twenty eight kilometres, Moët & Chandon's future is as secure as their champagnes are delicious.

Moet & Chandon History
The famous Champagne house Moët & Chandon was first founded in 1743 by Claude Moët, a wine trader, and was originally called Moët et Cie (Moët and Co). Claude's grandson, Jean Remy Moët was the person to drive the house onto the heights it has reached today.
Following the introduction of the concept of a vintage champagne in 1840, Moët marketed its first vintage in 1842. Their best-selling brand, Brut Imperial was introduced in the 1860s. Moët & Chandon is the worlds's largest producers of Champagne, producing over 26 million bottles per year. The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne, not only does the house own the most amount of land but also the largest extent of cellars, some 28 kilometers.
Moët & Chandon merged with Hennessy Cognac in 1971 and with Louis Vuitton in 1987 to become LVMH (Louis-Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy), the largest luxury group in the world, netting over 16 billion euros in fiscal 2004. Moët & Chandon holds a royal warrant as supplier of champagne to Queen Elizabeth II.
