Moët & Chandon organized several festivities, including a wonderful evening on the shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, to celebrate an important milestone in the history of its most iconic and best-selling champagne in the world and specially designed a logo for the occasion visible on Limited Editions.
For the end of year celebrations and in order to finish the year 2019, Moët & Chandon offers limited editions and several activities in Switzerland.
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Moët Impérial, born in 1869, Moët & Chandon unveiled its new bottle with a redesigned logo. The ‘I’ of Imperial pays homage to the 150 years of history of this champagne and becomes the new symbol of Moët Impérial at the end of the year.
Indeed, the Maison has maintained close ties with Napoleon Bonaparte, who became a close friend of the champagne house, and it is in his tribute that Moët & Chandon created Moët Impérial with the intention of assembling a champagne that is up to of this link ‘Imperial’.
To crown the 150 years of history of this exceptional champagne, the ‘I’ represents this historic link that must be celebrated according to the style that is the hallmark of the French Maison. Come into the world of Moët & Chandon.
With the limited edition Rosé Impérial 2018, Moët & Chandon pays tribute to Madame de Pompadour in an unconventional and contemporary way. She was the 18th century ‘IT girl’ who proclaimed the success of Moët & Chandon to the French royal court. This daring limited edition bottle offers an unparalleled insight to relive the times of this extravagant era, reinterpreting its customs and appearance with contemporary style.
The history of Moët & Chandon is closely linked to the influence of Madame de Pompadour. As King Louis XV’s most valued confidante, she was one of the French champagne house’s first connoisseurs and regulars, introducing the brand to the influential royal entourage. According to legend, she once confessed… “Champagne is the only wine that keeps women beautiful after drinking”.
Moët & Chandon Rose Impérial 2018 Capsule is an ode to Madame de Pompadour, to honor her as the world’s first ‘influencer’. She had impeccable taste in art, literature, interior design and, most importantly, style. One of the first established clients and connoisseurs of the French champagne house, she used her influence and stepped up to the French royal court to explain the success of Moët & Chandon.
The best woman has also played a key role in creating the contemporary image of Paris – as a city of fashion, love and freedom. It was therefore only fitting that the champagne brand paid tribute to Madame de Pompadour this year with a limited edition Rosé Impérial Capsule collection.
This limited edition aims to bring the character and drive of Madame de Pompadour to life. The bottle alone exudes elegance, bravado and daring. The design should remind you of a beautiful, colorful royal masked ball. You’ll see some very special outfits: a peacock-clad woman, a cabaret-style girl and finally a seductive gentleman in a rock ‘n’ roll look. The characters reflect the mix of cultures that passed by from the 18th century.
The fully bloomed roses in the bottle represent the floral nuances of rose in the Rosé Impérial. The champagne itself is not a sweet mess, as you might expect from a rosé champagne, but a full taste of ripe mulberries, slightly sweeter herbs and a tad sour to finish it off. Perfect as an aperitif, but can also be served with chicken, fish or shellfish. And for the real fans: this champagne should not be missing for breakfast either!
Rosé Impérial is the most extroverted and glamourous expression of the Moët & Chandon style. It is a Champagne with a radiant color, intense fruitiness and a seductive palate. The elegant floral notes of rose inspired the design of the playful catwalk of roses in the bottle design.Madame de Pompadour
