The Perfect Match: new Moët & Chandon series inspires the art of pairing champagne and food

Exceptional meals feature memorable pairings of food and wine.  The flavors and aromas complement one another, subtly melding to achieve exquisite tasting perfection. An intimate relationship emerges between a champagne and a dish, creating a harmonious association that elevates both the wine and the food.

In the new Instagram series The Perfect Match, Moët & Chandon invites its followers to a feast for their eyes and taste buds. The menu consists of four episodes, proposing a pairing between one of the Maison’s champagnes and a dish created specially to match the subtleties of the elixir. Each episode of The Perfect Match  features Benoît Gouez, Chef de Cave of Moët & Chandon, and celebrated French chef and Moët & Chandon ambassador Yannick Alléno, who has been awarded no fewer than 10 Michelin stars around the world. The Chef de Cave selected four of the Champagne house’s signature cuvées and invited the chef to imagine a dish that would create a fantastic tasting experience.

The experience is a great way to discover – or rediscover – the subtleties and philosophy of champagne pairing, Moët & Chandon style, with simplicity and meticulous excellence. The dishes prepared by Chef Alléno are voluntarily simple and easy to make at home to let everyone enjoy these culinary delights without compromising quality in the least.

In the first episode of The Perfect Match Benoît Gouez challenges Yannick Alléno to find an ideal pairing to bring out the aromas of a glass of Moët Impérial, the Maison’s flagship champagne with its perfect balance of bright fruitiness with notes of apple and citrus fruit. The chef readily accepted the challenge, working in his kitchen at the Pavillon Ledoyen to create canapés with shrimp, olive tapenade and brioche. The iodized flavor of the shrimp brings saltiness to the champagne, the one element it does not have, resulting in a perfect balance. The barely cooked shrimp goes superbly well with the lightness of Moët Impérial, with neither dominating the other.

Don’t miss the other three episodes of The Perfect Match on the Moët & Chandon Instagram account, in which  Yannick Alléno prepares custom recipes for Rosé Impérial, Grand Vintage 2012 and the Impérial 1869 cocktail.

Moët & Chandon

Driven by its pioneering spirit, Moët & Chandon has always produced a Champagne with an inimitable identity.

Creation date: 1743
Chairman and CEO: Stéphane Baschiera
Head office: Avenue de Champagne, 51200 Epernay – France

IDENTITY

Since 1743 when it was founded, Moët & Chandon has been passing down unequaled winemaking savoir-faire and an innovative and pioneering spirit from generation to generation.

Claude Moët, its founder, was the first person to embody these values when he made his Champagne the most sought-after in Europe. With his grandson, Jean Remy Moët, a pioneering and visionary mind, Moët & Chandon became a major international champagne brand. This saga quickly transformed the family House into a worldwide symbol of success.

The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru, make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne. Underground, the Moët & Chandon cellars are the most extensive in the region. Extending more than 28 kilometers, they form a subterranean labyrinth where the wine metamorphoses under optimum conditions of humidity and temperature.

ICON

As the House’s signature cuvée, Moët Impérial is its most comprehensive and universal expression. This Champagne is a perfectly executed blend of over 200 crus, mingling the full body of pinot noir with the suppleness of meunier and the finesse of chardonnay. The very incarnation of balance in Champagne for over 150 years.

“Undoubtedly, it is Moët & Chandon’s legendary heritage and pioneering spirit. Furthermore, this is a brand with an exceptional savoir-faire, yet it is always innovatively forward-thinking. From innovating successful new trends in bottling to creating new methods of celebration, Moët & Chandon continues to pursue new ways to share the magic of Champagne with the world.”

Stéphane Baschiera, Chairman and CEO of Moët & Chandon

SAVOIR-FAIRE

For Benoît Gouez, Cellar Master at Moët & Chandon since 2005, the champagne that he was previously ignorant of has now become a passion. In his own words: “I’m not from the wine world. I arrived here through a series of encounters, circumstances and above all, intuition! “. Benoît Gouez’s enthusiasm and expertise drove him to understand the spirit of Moët & Chandon Champagne, which he has been magnifying with boldness and elegance, vintage after vintage.

INNOVATION

Only Moët & Chandon could innovate by breaking the rules. The House rose to a new challenge by developing a luxuriously revolutionary Champagne: Moët Ice Impérial is the very first refreshing Champagne to be enjoyed over ice, in large glasses that have been specially designed to reveal all of its subtlety.
