This is French, so you don't say the sound of some of the letters. For "moet" first say "mow" like "mow the lawn," then "a" the long a sound as in "mate". For "chandon", say "shan" rhymes with "man" and "don," short for "Donald". My husband says, "Always pronounce French words with an attitude. "

Mo√ęt is a Dutch name, not French. It's pronounced "mow-ette". The company is very definitive about this.  add a comment

No, unfortunately that answer is incorrect. While 'Moet' is commonly (and incorrectly) pronounced 'mo-aye', the correct pronunciation used by the french representatives of the brand is 'mo-et' - because while the champagne is french, Claude Moet was dutch and mo-et is the correct dutch pronunciation.  add a comment

Although the letter 't' is generally silent in French, it is not in the name Moet. So it is pronounced: mow-ett shawn-dawn.
