TASTING NOTES:
Gentle, fresh, harmonious

Appearance

Bright, pale yellow, with green reflections and a fine, persistent bead.

Aroma

The nose hints of fresh white flowers, which develop into aromas of sweet pastry, walnuts and hazelnuts, then ripe pear, white peach and nectarine.

Taste

A supple and soft-textured champagne, its initial sweetness gives way to a more structured acidity. A persistent finish reveals a hint of iodine underscored by a zesty note of pink grapefruit.

BLEND & ORIGIN CHAMPAGNE

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012

This vintage was tested, withstanding frost, heavy rain, hail, a cold spell during flowering and periods of scalding heat.
 

Ideal weather in August, paired with a staggered harvest, ensured the grapes – 41% chardonnay, 33% pinot noir and 26% meunier – were sweet, with a notable freshness.
 

The meunier was particularly fine and an essential part of the assemblage.
