    Separated by the decades, these vintages are as individual as they are exceptional. The 1992 blend balances 45% Pinot Noir grapes with 40% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. In 2002, Chardonnay makes up the majority of the blend with 51%, then 26% Pinot Noir and 23% Pinot Meunier. The 2012 consists of 41% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir and 26% Meunier, with the wines made from black grapes proving particularly good.


THREE DELICIOUS DECADES

A grand tradition
A grand tradition

Back in 1842, Moët & Chandon created one of the very first vintage champagnes. Ever since then, this legendary champagne house has been showcasing the very best harvests in its Grand Vintage Collection. Starting 150 years later, this delicious trilogy spans three decades of Moët & Chandon. Through three exceptional wines – each one the Cellar Master’s free interpretation of a single year’s grapes – it tells the unique stories of 1992, 2002 and 2012.

The nineties and noughties
The nineties and noughties

The collection begins with the House's 61st vintage, the mature and harmonious 1992. That year, a mild spring helped deliver grapes with an ideal acidity and concentration – a welcome reprieve for winemakers, who had suffered spring frosts three years in a row. Then fast-forward a decade to discover the trilogy’s second reveal – the 2002. This suave and imposing 69th vintage emerged from an exceptional harvest, as hot, dry weather and winds concentrated the grapes, creating a rare balance and maturity.

The ultimate closer
The ultimate closer

Finally, comes the 2012 – a wine which emerged from an unprecedented year in Champagne. Through spring and summer, Mother Nature did her very worst. But in August, winemakers’ fortunes unexpectedly turned around, and soon there was talk of this being one of the great vintages. Gentle, fresh and harmonious, the House’s 74th vintage is a glorious way to close this collection, brought together in a sleek, black wooden box for champagne lovers to enjoy.

Food pairing:
COMPLEMENT THESE VINTAGES WITH DECADENT DISHES

1992: Start with lobster’s bold flavours, then enjoy the vintage’s complexity with veal set off by truffle risotto and butternut squash.

 

2002: Bring out its depth with a starter of cured Spanish ham, or indulge in foie gras. For a main course, try alongside a dish rich with parmesan cheese or crispy sesame prawns.

 

2012: Succulent shellfish complements this champagne’s fresh aromas – try langoustine with chervil, or crab with avocado. Keep dessert light. We suggest meringue shells with grapefruit sorbet.
