Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy Champagne
|Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy - 75cl||Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy - 75cl||£395.00|
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.

Champagne Region: Côte des Blancs
Annual Production (bottles): Not communicated
Moët & Chandon 1988: A somewhat difficult season for the region began with some early mild spring weather, allowing flowering to occur without any problems. The early summer months showed signs of promise but July and August were cloudy and wet. September arrived and with it came a last flurry of sunshine. Champagnes that have been given time to age have developed amazing complexity due to the exceptional acidity levels of the grapes at harvest.
Moët & Chandon 1998: A warm harvest produced wines with very high acidity. The season began began with mild weather and sunny spells. The summer months were superb with average temperatures for August the highest since 1962. Generally revered as one of the best vintages from the 1990s, champagnes from 1998 are tasting sublime today.
Moët & Chandon 2008: Earmarked as having the potential to compete with 2002 on quality and ageing potential. The weather conditions began with relative mild and humid spells, but sunshine through the late spring with cool evenings leading into the summer months created ideal conditions before harvest. Grapes had great acidity and the ageing potential is astounding. The next big vintage!
According to Cellar Master Benoît Gouez, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 1988 has similar linear characteristics to the recently released 2008 and still has an incredible freshness quality to it. Discover their similarities for yourself with this prestige and rare Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy case, which includes three 75cl bottles as described, presented in a beautifully crafted and branded black wooden case (as shown in the picture on the left).

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.
