Moet & Chandon
Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne
Moët Impérial is Moët & Chandon’s iconic champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies the brand’s unique style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, seductive palate, and elegant maturity.
Pale straw in colour with a fine mousse; defined aromas of roasted nuts, rye bread toast and grapefruit; the palate is extra-dry with just-shy-of-medium body and lovely replay of flavors from the nose with a mineral note on a clean finish. Experts recommend this Champagne would be a perfect match with pork, tuna, salmon, shellfish, and mild cheese.
Created from more than 100 different wines, of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines specially selected to enhance its maturity, complexity and constancy, the assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varietals;
- THE BODY OF PINOT NOIR; 30 to 40%
- THE SUPPLENESS OF PINOT MEUNIER; 30 to 40%
- THE FINESSE OF CHARDONNAY; 20 to 30%
An elegant colour, golden straw yellow with green highlights.
- The vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit
- The freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers
- The elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts)
|Grapes||100% Pinot Noir|
|Winery||Moet & Chandon|
