Moët & Chandon Champagne – Fun Facts

  • The name “Moët and Chandon” originated from two race horses. In 1908, Alfred Simon, Moët and Chandon’s British agent, won two races at Epsom on his horses “Moët” and “Chandon”. To celebrate his victories, he bought champagne for the whole racecourse.
  • 1815: the year that Champagne established itself as a luxury beverage at British racecourses.
  • Moët & Chandon have a vintage range and it is unknown when the next vintage champagne will be released. A vintage champagne is determined by unusual weather in a particular year which affects the grapes from the original source. The latest vintage champagne available is from 2008.
  • Champagne is best served from a Magnum bottle. The size of the bottle allows the aromas and flavours to age.

Cheers!
