Blend and Origin
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2009
A difficult start to the year proved concerning, but the persistent rain and cold temperatures reversed in July, and a sunny and hot summer led to grapes with near-perfect acidity. A blend of pinot noir (59%), of which 19% is still red wine, chardonnay (30%) and meunier (11%), this champagne is expressive and fruity. Seven years of cellaring creates balance and complexity.

Be brave with this grand blend
Pair with a starter of tuna carpaccio and sliced fennel, or Sichuan pepper pastry canapés.
For a main course, experiment with king crab tabbouleh and herbs, or pigeon breast with a citrus-based sauce.
Strawberry and black pepper jelly with hibiscus sauce, or a strawberry and grapefruit crunch with Sichuan pepper ice cream make for ideal final courses.
