Moet & Chandon – An Elegant Non-Vintage
Historical know-how and state-of-the art technology come together to create the harmonious balance for which Moët & Chandon champagne is known the world over.
The Moët & Chandon style is distinctive: a bright fruitiness, a seductive palate and an elegant maturity that are the result of the slow, gradual progression from vine to cellar. Every stage in the process relies on the complementary know-how of vine growers, vat men, cellar men, oenologists and other professionals all united by the strong principles that constitute our core values, our Wine Credo.
Moët Impérial is the House’s iconic champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies Moët & Chandon’s unique style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness and its seductive palate.
The non-vintage Imperial range is 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%).
Tasting notes: An elegant colour golden straw yellow with green highlights. The vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit along with the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers enhance the blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts).
A generous palate, combining sumptuousness and subtlety. The delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple)along with the alluring caress of fine bubbles bring out the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and nuances of gooseberry.
