Champagne ‘overreacted’ to challenges of 2017 harvest

Growers may have “overreacted” to the challenges of this year’s vintage in Champagne because they are used to “easy harvests”, according to Moët & Chandon cellar master Benoît Gouez.

2009 as great as 2002 in Champagne, says Moët cellar master

“I am convinced that 2009 is of the same pedigree as 2002,” said Moët & Chandon cellar master Benoît Gouez, when launching a Champagne from the former vintage in London last week.
