On June 4, renowned Champagne house Moët & Chandon hosted an intimate black-tie gala dinner to celebrate 150 years of Moët Impérial. With what is arguably the world’s most recognised – and loved -sparkling, Moët Impérial has been the house iconic champagne for the Moët & Chandon brand since 1869.
Guests gathered in the revered Sydney Town Hall for what was a spectacular showcase of the true spirit of the Moët & Chandon house. With champagne flowing all night, the star-studded event was celebrated in true style.
From the whimsical sounds of the quartet to the grandeur of the event space itself, it was the glorious champagne tower in the middle of Centennial Hall that had guests in awe; an elegant nod to the rich and wonderful history of Moët & Chandon.
Marking a unique milestone in the extraordinary journey of the global icon, Moët Impérial has epitomised its unwavering commitment to excellence for 150 years – an impressive feat to say the least.
To begin the evening’s proceedings, guests were welcomed by Moët & Chandon CEO, Stephane Baschiera – who travelled all the way from France to attend – and Moët & Chandon ambassador Jessinta Franklin; all the while enjoying the Impérial 1869 cocktail in hand, of course.
The two-course degustation meal was curated by world-renowned French chef Guillaume Brahimi – of the famed ‘Bistro Guillaume’ in Melbourne – superbly paired to Moët Impérial from the new limited-edition anniversary bottles.
To cap off dinner in true style, Stéphane Baschiera and Jesinta Franklin poured the 20-tier Moët Impérial champagne tower – the ultimate gesture of grandeur and elegance. Guests were then delighted to a surprise performance by award-winning Australian musician Hayden James in the Moët & Chandon Studio 1869 after party; the perfect way to end this ceremonious affair.
Be sure to keep an eye out on all things Moët & Chandon, with a limited edition anniversary bottle of the Moët Impérial set to be released to mark the occasion. These exclusive bottles are inscribed with a redesigned logo that erects the “I” of “Impérial” into a new symbol.
