More to try
In 1842, Moët & Chandon revealed its first vintage champagne. Ever since, the House has given its Cellar Master the freedom to explore the unique character of a single year’s harvest through exceptional vintages, which stand out for their maturity, their complexity and their individuality. Fresh and delicate, the House’s 43rd vintage rosé champagne is a dazzling addition to its renowned Grand Vintage Collection.
The year of this champagne’s creation will long be remembered by winemakers. The first few months spelled disaster – Mother Nature did her worst with frosts through winter and spring, torrential rain, hailstorms and a cold spell just as the vines flowered. Then, in late summer, came scalding heat and a shortage of water. But, as can only happen in Champagne, the tables turned – and soon there was talk of 2012 being one of the great vintages...
August saved the harvest, as hot, dry weather and a particularly low yield combined to allow the grapes to ripen and to prevent disease. To their delight, winemakers found that these grapes were both sweeter and more acidic than those of many recent years – similar instead, to the acclaimed vintages of 2002, 1989 and 1966. And from that unparalleled year, emerges an unparalleled champagne... Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2012.
