Moet Chandon Champagne
The love story began in 1745 when Louis XV’s favourite, The Marquise de Pompadour, who surrounded herself with the greatest artists and philosophers of the era, used to proclaim that “champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking”.
Some of the greatest women in history have contributed to the celebrity of Moët & Chandon champagne. Both Napoleon’s mother and his wife, Josephine, were it’s powerful proponents under the First Empire. They were succeeded by women who dared to make waves. The great Sarah Bernhardt drank a half-bottle of Moët & Chandon with every meal and confided that the bubbles had a marvellous effect on her. And amid the whirl of the Roaring Twenties and its seething artistic atmosphere, champagne was the heady pleasure of “le Tout Paris”. Josephine Baker walked her panther on the terrace of La Rotonde and visited the Moët & Chandon cellars
With the advent of illustrated advertisements, Moët & Chandon won the hearts of consumers. With an advertising campaign staring Moët & Chandon as hero and women as its interpreters. In 1953, all eyes turned to England as the young queen, Elisabeth II, was crowned. The event was celebrated with Moët & Chandon Vintage 1943. During the 50’s and beyond, Moët & Chandon champagne dazzled actresses at the Cannes Film Festival and models for the designer Worth, who were photographed with a “coupe de champagne” in hand.
