Champagne house Moët & Chandon is to auction off two rare bottles of its 1914 Grand Vintage Collection through a Sotheby’s auction in November.
Dosage needs to be seen as more than just a sweetener and vital to the stability and longevity of Champagne Moët cellar master Benoît Gouez has argued.
Benoît Gouez, chef de cave at Moët & Chandon, has stated his belief that there is still room to grow the rosé Champagne category – though at a slower rate than before.
Moët & Chandon will be producing a 2012 vintage but not a 2011 or 2010 said chef de cave Benoît Gouez.
Moët & Chandon has launched its Grand Vintage 2004, which winemaker Benoît Gouez summed up as “elegant, sleek and graceful: definitely a wine for lovers of finely aged Champagne.”
Benoît Gouez, chef de cave of Moët & Chandon, has spoken out about the Champagne house, insisting it is not a volume-driven “machine.”
A six-bottle case of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1911 is on sale in London department store Harrods for £65,000, just under £11,000 per bottle.
