Moet & Chandon "Imperial" Brut Rosé Champagne

SKU #996609 91 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This blend is mostly Pinot Noir and Meunier, including 10 percent red wine for color. Chardonnay accounts for 10 to 20 percent, including a portion of reserve wines that may be providing the oceanic, oyster-shell notes that bring to mind Champagne’s Kimmeridgean limestone. This is broad and loose up front, with fruity scents of orange and pomegranate. Then the wine keeps buzzing with brisk acidity, tightening up and extending the flavors with energy. An impressive release of Impérial. Inner quote mark (12/2015)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Hints of ripe peach, passion fruit and juicy acidity are carried on a tightly knit, satiny mousse in this firm rosé, layered with spiced plum, dried cherry, smoke and star anise notes. Try this with charcuterie. Inner quote mark (10/2015)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (roughly 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, with 9 g/l dosage; LAH9V): Dark, vivid pink. Ripe red berries, rose oil and tangerine on the nose, plus a subtle note of toasty lees. Bitter cherry and berry skin flavors give way to softer raspberry in the middle, with a tangy blood orange nuance adding cut and lift. Packs a punch but shows very good clarity and delineation, finishing round, smooth and quite long. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2015)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Red berry fruits give this approachable wine a crisp edge rounded out with a broader texture, with touches of spice and red cherries. The aftertaste is lively, fresh and light. Inner quote mark (12/2015)

K&L Notes

Finalist, Ultimate Wine Challenge 2013, and 92 points: "Aromas are rich and slightly toasted, reminiscent of freshly baked rolls. Bright flavors of cherries and rhubarb fill the mouth with a deep yeasty finish. Bubbles are small and compact, producing a smooth mousse and overall soft mouthfeel. Delicious."

What really defines this Champagne is the combination of rich fruit flavors like white cherry, strawberry and blackberry, and its soft, friendly nature, with round and supple edges, subtle spice notes and a nice acid on the finish. Made with mostly Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, with a splash of Chardonnay for finesse. A very exciting and well-crafted wine from one of the oldest and most respected Champagne houses in France.
