Moet Imperial Brut is the House's iconic champagne. Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay , Pinot Noir , and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers.

The Moet Imperial is arguably the most popular champagne in the world, assuming we are talking sales volume. However, it is important to not confuse a massive quantity with a lack of quality.
