Moët & Chandon, the champagne of success and glamour since 1743, this week held the “Tribute to the Spirit of 1743” gala dinner in Shanghai, China.
Hosted by Moët’s celebrity muse Scarlett Johansson, the exclusive event welcomed guests on the Peninsula Shanghai Roof Top Terrace overlooking the Bund, followed by an after-party at Bar Rouge, one of the city’s trendiest clubs. The Peninsula’s rooftop was specially crafted out of 15,000 sparkling champagne glasses, lining the terrace walls for the occasion.
In Hong Kong, prior to the Shanghai dîner du siècle, Moët & Chandon auctioned off a luxurious coffret filled with bottles of the prestigious Grand Vintage 1911. Auctioned at $10,000 USD, the proceeds benefitted The Nature Conservancy, a local environmental initiative helping to protect nature and preserve wildlife.
The ‘Tribute to the Spirit of 1743" celebrated Moët’s longtime and successful heritage in China. Moët & Chandon first arrived in China in 1843, exactly one century after the House’s founding in 1743.
To salute this 100-year landmark at the unforgettable dinner, Moët featured a rare 100-year old wine, Grand Vintage 1911, to an array of international VIPs including actress Shu Qi, Bollywood star Abhay Deol, and Japanese actress and movie commentator Lilico. A magnificent wine that has lived on to become a legend, Grand Vintage 1911 is one of Moët & Chandon’s most distinguished champagnes.
“Moët’s 168-year history in China, a country with an exceptional heritage, is based on our shared values: firmly rooted in tradition yet innovatively forward thinking,” said Daniel Lalonde, President and CEO of Moët & Chandon. “As the champagne of success and glamour since 1743, Moët is proud to host this magical evening in Shanghai with our ambassador Scarlett Johansson.”
