Today, the Moët & Chandon wine makers combine the traditional art of winemaking with state-of-the art technology to create the perfect wine.

Moët & Chandon create their distinctive champagnes by combining three different types of grapes: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. The combination of these three grape varietals is considered essential to produce a perfect champagne with the right level of fruitiness, a sumptuous palate, and elegant maturity.
Australia’s favourite celebration wine is the Moët Impérial. It was first produced in 1869 and continues to be Moët & Chandon’s most iconic and best-selling champagne. Joining the collection is their Rosé Impérial, which adds the allure of red fruits and berries with floral nuances of rose. And Moët & Chandon’s Ice Impérial, which was the first champagne especially created to be enjoyed chilled over ice.
The most famous of Moët & Chandon’s wines is their premium Dom Pérignon prestige vintage champagne. Dom Pérignon was named for the 17th century Benedictine monk considered as the ""Father of Champagne"". The first vintage of Moët & Chandon’s Dom Pérignon was made in 1921 and released for sale in 1936.
Dom Pérignon is always made as a blend of the highest quality Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes. Moët & Chandon’s experienced vintners produce the premium vintage champagne only in the best grape seasons, and using only grapes harvested in the same year, with every vintage aged for at least 12 years.
