Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy Champagne
|Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy - 75cl||Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy - 75cl||£395.00|
1998: Wines with high acidity, the weather began with mild weather and sunny spells. The summer months were superb with August average temperatures the highest since 1962. Revered as one of the best vintages from the 90’s.
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 the picking. The grapes have great acidity and ageing qualities.
According to Chef de Cave Benoît Gouez, the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 1988 has similar linear characteristics to the recently released 2008 and still has a freshness quality to it.
The Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy consists of a wooden box presentation featuring the New Grand Vintage 2008 together with the Grand Vintage Collection 1998 and Grand Vintage 1988.

Moët & 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.
