Moet & Chandon "Nectar Imperial" Demi-Sec Champagne

SKU #1009385 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Yellow-gold with a faint peach skin tinge. Peach, nectarine and spun sugar on the nose. Lush, creamy flavors of sweet pit fruits and melon are deepened by notes of honey and nougat. A touch of orange peel lifts this sappy, off-dry wine, which finishes on a slightly syrupy note. This is easier to drink and less cloying than many examples of sweet Champagne.  (12/ 2009)

Wine Enthusiast

 A good benchmark for a sweeter Champagne. In fact, not extravagantly sweet, because the fruit remains fresh, giving pear and apricot flavors, and a pure line in fresh acidity.  (12/ 2009)

Wine Spectator

 Lightly sweet, with ripe apple, honey and candied citrus peel flavors. It's round and accessible, with a fresh finish. For fans of the style. Drink now. (Web-2008)

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced.
