Moët & Chandon is one of the most renowned champagne houses in the world, founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. The brand has stood out over the centuries for its quality and innovation, expanding its vineyards and modernizing production. In 1832, Claude Moët's son-in-law, Pierre-Gabriel Chandon de Briailles, joined the company, which was then renamed Moët & Chandon. The brand is known for its iconic champagne, Moët Impérial, introduced in 1869, and its ongoing commitment to excellence and tradition. Moët & Chandon has become a symbol of luxury and celebration, and is now part of the LVMH luxury group, owner of Louis-Vuitton.

Owning a Moët & Chandon invoice from 1909 is rare and interesting to wine amateurs for several reasons. First, historical documents related to winemaking offer a unique glimpse into the production and business methods of the time. Having an invoice from a champagne house as prestigious as Moët & Chandon can be seen as a relic that connects the present to the beginnings of modern champagne production, making it a valuable collectible.

What I also find interesting about this invoice is the formality and attention to detail, reflected in the meticulous handwriting and language used. The “Moët & Chandon” heading emphasizes the brand’s long tradition and prestige, while order and transaction details show how business was conducted in the early 20th century. The presence of telegraphic and telephone addresses is also an indication of the technological advancement of the time. Furthermore, the invoice reveals a human aspect of the champagne story, connecting the renowned brand to its customers in a tangible and personal way. A rare piece.
