It a "fact" that comes from the same received wisdom stable as "Mo-ey" being the correct pronunciation of Moët, which it isn't.
There are two reasons that the mo-ay pronunciation is wrong. The diacritic above the "e" means that the "ay" sound is wrong.
The second reason is more matter of fact, Mr Moët was Dutch.
