ORIGIN

Epernay, Champagne France. The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru, make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne. Underground, the Moët & Chandon cellars are the most extensive in the region. Extending more than 28 kilometres, they form a subterranean labyrinth where the wine metamorphoses under optimum conditions of humidity and temperature.
