Visitors will be able to experience first-hand the generosity of the Maison’s sprawling vineyards, with a full selection of Moët & Chandon champagnes available by the glass with prices starting from £16. From the elegant blonde notes of the Brut Impérial NV to the sweet aromas of the House’s Grand Vintage Rosé or for cocktail lovers, look no further than the ‘Peach Blossom‘ and ‘Champagne Shake’. All Moët & Chandon enthusiasts will be captivated by the magic of this unique encounter.
Champagnes available to savour by the bottle – from 75cl to magnum – will include exceptional wines from the Moët & Chandon Legacy Champagne Grand Vintage and Legacy Champagne Rare Limited-Edition Bottle Collections – with the likes of a 1959 Grand Vintage Magnum worth £4,400 on offer, as well as the more accessible Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial NV.
With an array of sumptuous sweet and savory dishes available, foodies will not be disappointed. From the bar’s signature ‘Choux Love’ dish – a mouthwatering dessert of choux pastry buns with a mango & passion fruit diplomat filling (each branded with one of the four M O Ë T letters) – to the deliciously tempting ‘Cheese Délice’ – a Burrata Stracciatella, spicy Kimchi & black sesame toastie.
Other notable dishes include the aptly named ‘The World Is Your Oyster’ – rock oysters, pear & cucumber, Oscietra caviar; the vegan-friendly ‘Not Another Faux Pas’ – faux gras, rhubarb, ginger and bread; and the unctuous ‘Moët Caramel’ – a dark chocolate shell (cleverly cast in the shape of a Moët & Chandon embossed bottle plaque) filled with 66% dark chocolate mousse & salted caramel, served on a crunchy biscuit.
To enhance the unique customer experience, dishes will be presented on a selection of bespoke plates each bearing a different famous champagne quote, including “Pleasure without champagne is purely artificial” by Oscar Wilde and “My only regret in life is that I didn’t drink enough champagne” – a remark once made British Economist John Maynard Keynes.
Moët & Chandon has elated the royal courts of France under Louis XV, walked the red carpets of Hollywood, toasted the Grand Slams of the world, lit up Studio 54, ﬂashed during Fashion Weeks, rejoiced with the Queen’s milestones, and now joins Harrods – an iconic London destination with its doors open to all.
