Who doesn’t like champagne when you’re in an A-List party? Moet Imperial is Moet & Chandon’s most iconic champagne. It was created in 1869, and embodies Moet & Chandon’s signature taste of fruitiness with a hint of seduction and maturity. That’s because it is made from three different grape varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonay.
