Sotheby's to auction rare Moët & Chandon's vintages going back to 1914

Published:  18 September, 2013

Sotheby's London is to hold an exclusive auction featuring never-before-seen vintages of Moët & Chandon with lots that go back to 1914.

The auction on November 13 is a collection of 270 bottles and also marks the Champagne house's 270th anniversary this year.  Additionally, there will be 174 Magnums and three Jeroboams to honour the year that it was founded, which was 1743.

Serena Sutcliffe MW, Sotheby's worldwide head of wines, said: "We have never before held an auction of this scale, with such a selection of rare and fine Champagnes from one producer.  It is a truly historic range - one that offers you the chance to step into the heritage of the Moët cellars."

The bottles set for auction were all selected by Chef de Cave Benoît Gouez and Sotheby's Serena Sutcliff MW from the 28 km cellars located in Epernay, France.  The bottles were selected to represent the Moët cellar history.
