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.
A beauty born from turmoil
Mirror the champagne’s succulent and light nature in your menu with yellowtail carpaccio, or langoustine with chervil as a starter.
For a main course, pair with Norwegian king crab with avocado, or veal with roasted brussels sprouts.
Choose creamy lemon bites with candied pineapple, or meringue shells with grapefruit sorbet.
