Moët & Chandon – Château de Saran / Mai 2019
Moët & Chandon
At its magnificent new “Château de Famille,” Moët & Chandon hosted a star-studded soirée celebrating a historic milestone in the journey of its signature champagne.
Gracing the glittering evening with their presence were some of the brightest stars of Hollywood, namely Natalie Portman and Uma Thurman, style icon Kate Moss, the British actor Douglas Booth and Derek Blasberg. The House hosted celebrities, brand ambassadors and friends of the Maison who had travelled to Champagne for the special night to toast the lovingly-restored Château de Saran on its remarkable debut, and to mark the memorable 150th-year milestone in the journey of Moët Impérial.
Following an elegant cocktail party at the Château, a festive seated dinner was served in a striking mirrored structure especially designed to reflect the spectacular beauty of the House’s vineyards. The meal, prepared like a concerto “with four hands” combined the unique culinary talents of Yannick Alléno, the three Michelin-starred French chef and brand ambassador for the House since 2014, with the artistry of Dominique Crenn, co-owner and chef of the three-Michelin-starred restaurant Atelier Crenn in San Francisco. The evening was highlighted, after dinner, by a live musical performance courtesy of British singer-songwriter, Freya Ridings, Britain’s biggest breakthrough artist thanks to her 2018 platinum-selling hit “Lost Without You.” Her smooth, melodic sounds enhanced the harmony of the celebrations that culminated with a mesmerizing display of colorful fireworks to illuminate the skies above the Château de Saran and the vineyards in the foothills, echoing the bright sparkles of Moët Impérial.
