What is champagne?
Most people are probably aware of what champagne is and what it consists of. But it is important to state that not all sparkling wines can be classified as champagne.
Champagne has four special characteristics:
- All champagne must come from the Champagne region in northern France . Due to the region's modest size, large quantities of champagne cannot be produced and in fact it is the case that champagne production only accounts for 1% of the world's total wine production.
- All champagne is produced by the noble "Méthode Champenoise" , which requires a secondary fermentation process whereby sugar and yeast react with each other and create carbonation.
- Champagne is created using "assemblage" or mixing of wines from different vintages and grape varieties depending on the variety.
- Champagne is stored for a long time in the bottle in the long cellar corridors . Non-vintage champagnes must age for a minimum of 15 months. However, the well-known Moët Impérial is aged for 24 months.
The story of Moët & Chandon Champagne
" Driven by its pioneering spirit, Moët & Chandon has always produced a Champagne with an inimitable identity ", says the champagne house itself. Since 1743, Moët & Chandon has presented innovative champagnes from generation to generation. The Champagne house owns the largest area of vineyards in the area, Champagne, where champagne is produced from more than 1190 hectares. This area stretches over 28 kilometers, making Möet & Chandon one of the world's largest champagne houses.
The founder, Claude Moët, began producing and shipping his champagne after an increased need from King Louis XV of France. The king wanted sparkling wine, and then the demand increased among nobles and aristocrats. A century later, the champagne house also became the royal court supplier for Queen Elisabeth the Second of Great Britain. This was the starting point for Moët & Chandon, which today stands behind one of the world's most loved champagnes.
