Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Extra Brut Champagne 2013
Each Grand Vintage is unique and expresses the Moët & Chandon Cellar Master’s personal interpretation of the year. The maturity of this 2013 champagne – the 75th Grand Vintage in the House’s history – is immediately apparent.
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 is a champagne marked by a late harvest. It encapsulates a year of waiting, a year of anticipation. The season shines through in its flavours and aromas, while its maturity is expressed through its autumnal notes, golden hue and persistent bubbles.
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 is an unexpectedly complementary expression of a year that is widely known for its Chardonnays. This champagne contains Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in almost equal parts, enhanced by suggestions of Meunier. After 7 years in the cellars, it reveals a truly unique character.
- A slightly golden color
- A light golden hue with fine, persistent bubbles.
- Autumnal bouquet
The maturity of this champagne is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is revealed next, reminiscent of a beautifully ripe apple or pear. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the bouquet.
The palate is direct and energetic, supported by a lively yet delicate acidity and a finely chiselled structure, and enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasantly bitter hint of white grapefruit.
