A new "Moët & Chandon" Champagne to mark the 280th anniversary

As one of the iconic properties of the Maison, the Château, linked with over two centuries of history, has reopened after a renovation by the Parisian "Atelier Cos".

Following a renovation, the "Château Moët & Chandon" on the Saran Estate in Champagne has been given a new lease of life. The property, owned by the Maison since 1801, is entering the 21st century after an architecturally impressive revival by the Parisian "Atelier Cos". Behind this transformation are two masters of their trade: interior designer Yves de Marseille and landscape architect Peter Wirtz. Together, they opened it to visitors to celebrate the history of Moët & Chandon.

New champagne for the 280th anniversary

Each of the eleven suites has been artfully designed. The Vendangeoir, the heart of the property, houses stylish dining rooms created by contemporary designers. A place where culinary delights and Champagne enjoyment complete the unique Saran experience. A new Champagne, the "Grande Cuvée No. 1", was presented to mark the 280th anniversary.

The castle and its heritage

The building and its late 18th century-style façade dominate the landscape and catch the eye of visitors long before they even enter the driveway of the estate. A long, winding drive through the landscaped gardens leads to the castle via a cobbled forecourt, which initially leads onto the Vendangeoir.

The main building has large bedrooms, a breakfast room, a large family room and a tasting room. The terrace serves as the perfect link between the lounges with views of the gardens and vineyards. The iconic Montaigu Lodge, also owned by Moët & Chandon, is visible in the distance. Even a short stay, whether for lunch or dinner, becomes a great experience in this ambience.
