1914 Moet & Chandon to auction for $9,500 in November

Sotheby's celebrates Moet & Chandon's 270th anniversary, starting with the 1914 vintage

Sotheby's will celebrate the 270th anniversary of Moet & Chandon champagne with nearly a century of vintages offered in a dedicated sale, beginning with the "opulent" 1914.

Sotheby's Serena Sutcliffe, worldwide head of wine, and Moet's Benoit Gouez describe the 1914 vintage as 'superlative'

The auction, to be held on November 13 in London, showcases Moet & Chandon's Grand Vintage collection, with the bottles consigned directly from the renowned house's cellars. The selection spans 1914-2004, and was chosen by Moet's chef de cave, Benoit Gouez.

The two bottles of the 1914 vintage are particularly special, valued at 4,800-6,000 ($7,633-9,541) each. "The harvest was brought forward due to the war, and the wine took a long time to develop, but today it is truly remarkable," explained Gouez.
