Private tasting at Moët et Chandon
Both the Moët and the G.H.Mumm facility state they have around 25kms of underground tunnels used to store the champagne as it progresses through from initial bottling, numerous fermentation and turning stages prior to dressing. Moët has achieved its status by continuing to buy properties in the area, then selling the house or building yet retaining ownership of the underground tunnels or "caves". Pretty clever.
