Moët & Chandon Launches $100,000 Limited Collection at Harrods

By Paul Joseph

French wine house Moët & Chandon has released 11 limited edition half cases of its 1911 Grand Vintage Collection, marking the champagne’s century-old maturation.

Each half case will include six bottles of Grand Vintage Collection 1911, and will be on display in one of Harrods’ Christmas windows in London over the festive period.

Even at the time of its harvest a century ago, the 1911 vintage was acclaimed by champagne experts of the era. Since then it has been conserved under optimum ageing conditions in the chateau’s cellars, before the bottles were disgorged earlier this year.

Moët & Chandon Chef de Cave, Benoît Gouez, said: “After one hundred years, Grand Vintage Collection 1911 literally overflows with vitality and energy, plus the charm of discreet bubbles.

“A wonderfully complex wine with both impressive depth and amazing freshness, an unrivalled champagne experience!”

The limited edition champagne is available exclusively at Harrods, priced at £65,000 ($100,000).
