    Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 1990

    Pinot noir (50%), chardonnay (40%) and meunier (10%) make up this vintage, disgorged in October 2003. Following a mild winter, warm and dry weather continued into March. Then came the April frost. Happily, intense rainfall in the days before the harvest meant that the grapes developed well and high levels of acidity were achieved, helping to ensure longevity.

The art of a Grand Vintage
The art of a Grand Vintage

Moët & Chandon’s Grand Vintage Collection, comprising vintages from 1842 to today, is one of Champagne’s most exquisite collections of unique and rare champagnes. Stored in the maison’s special cellars and tended to with meticulous care, each champagne is the ultimate expression of the year. For the 1990 vintage, it is its generosity and harmonious nature that sets it apart. Today, the maison’s willingness to embrace new and innovative ides is what makes it so special, while at the same time its mature Grand Vintages remain without compare.

Underground wonders

Spanning 28km and buried 10 to 30 metres below ground in Épernay, Moët & Chandon’s cellars are the largest in Champagne, with the oldest dating from the mid-18th century. The now-legendary underground labyrinth is testament to the cellar masters of yesterday and contains the most prized assets of the Moët & Chandon legacy. The colossal underground network of white-chalk tunnels snakes under the town, providing the perfect conditions for extended maturation, as evidenced in the maison’s excellent Grand vintage champagnes.

Extreme weather conditions threatened to spoil the 1990 harvest. Temperatures in early April plummeted to -7°C, covering 7,000 hectares across Reims, Épernay, Côte des Blancs and Ardre Valley in a light dusting of frost. Vineyards in the Aube region suffered a similar fate later that month. Following this, hot temperatures encouraged flowering, but a period of low temperatures and rain threatened grape development. Luckily, rain just before the harvest in September aided grape ripeness and resulted in a champagne that has been called the best all-around vintage since 1982.
