Blend and Origin
Moët Grand Vintage Blanc 2003
Grand Vintage 2003 has an opulent character, comprising 43% meunier, 29% pinot noir and 28% chardonnay. The dominance of red grapes in this vintage gives it its fabulous generosity and luscious fruitiness. The spring in 2003 brought frosts, which were followed by a historically hot and dry summer, leading to the earliest harvest on record – and plump, healthy grapes.
