Celebrate Moët & Chandon’s Sesquicentennial with IMPÉRIAL1869

Pop open a special limited-edition bottle of Moët Impérial filled with the House’s signature brut that reflects a distinctive style of champagne.

2019 marks one-hundred and fifty years of the fruity, seductive and elegant Moët & Chandon Impérial champagne. To celebrate this milestone, the house has released a limited-edition bottle inscribed with a redesigned logo that erects the “I” of “Impérial” into a new symbol for its most emblematic champagne.

The champagne of choice for A-listers and athlete to fete their achievements and mark milestones. Recreate the recipe below as you pour a bottle of Impérial at your next celebration.

The recipe highlights the beautiful fresh flavours of the cuvée. The grapefruit bitters and orange flower water complement and enhance the citrus and floral notes of the wine, whilst the agave adds a touch of richness and plays seamlessly with the yeasty character of the wine.
