The Moet et Chandon Ephemeral Restaurant
Benoit Gouez, Chef De Cave- Lorangerie in Epernay
The Moët & Chandon Ephemeral Restaurant event, which will be held in Paris on April 25, 2007, promises to be a full sensory feast.
Indulge your taste buds with Moët’s newest wine, Grand Vintage 2000, which will be launched at the event. By selecting the finest fruit from a Champagne estate acquired by Jean-Remy Moët at the end of the 18th century, Benoît Gouez, Chef de Cave at Moët & Chandon, has created a vintage that captures the luxurious spirit of the label. The evening will also feature other legendary Moët vintages selected by Gouez as well as the inventive cuisine of double Michelin-starred chef, Thierry Marx.
The ‘Ephemeral Restaurant’ will also be a visual treat. The highlight of the lavish setting will be an exclusive, limited edition 'Gold Vintage’ Panton chair, which was created by Moët in collaboration with Vitra.

Gold Vintage Panton Chair and Grand Vintage 2000
Like the Grand Vintage 2000 wine, the gilded chair is an ultra-modern incarnation of creative culture and a passion for perfection. The iconic chair was created by Verner Panton in 1967 and has been reincarnated especially for the ‘Ephemeral Restaurant.’ Since its inception, the Panton has become a classic and one of the most celebrated design objects in the world. "Certain great objects are like very great wines," says Gouez of the natural marriage between Grand Vintage 2000 and design. "They are perfectly of their time, but remain unforgettable."
