Moët & Chandon once again began welcoming visitors to its cellars after a year of renovation work.
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, France. Underground, the Moët & Chandon cellars (the wine and spirits division of the LVMH group) are the most extensive in the region. Extending more than 28 kilometers, they form a subterranean labyrinth where the wine metamorphoses under optimum conditions of humidity and temperature. After a full year of renovation, Moët & Chandon cellars in Epernay are again open to visitors.
The renovation done by Moët & Chandon brings the ancient cellars in line with current standards and at the same time preserves this internationally-recognized heritage site. Sites along the famous “avenue de Champagne” recently joined the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Visitors experience a complete immersion into the history and heritage of Moët & Chandon, discovering both the cellars and historic salons. The tour features the Cour d’Honneur, the Imperial Gallery and the Salon Jean-Rémy, named in homage to the grandson of Claude Moët, founder of the House.
