Moët & Chandon Nectar impérial 150 cl
Tropical, exciting and daring, Moët Nectar Impérial is the most exotic expression of the maison’s style, reflecting both the diversity and complementarity of Champagne’s three grape varietals. Rich and lively, Moët Nectar Impérial is built around the structure of pinot noir, with a demi-sec dosage providing a sumptuous yet fresh sweetness.
ROBERT PARKER 85 / 100
Since 1743, the champagnes of this renowned maison have been used to toast celebrations across the globe.
Moët has the largest estate in the region – and its pick of the best grapes. The intensity in this blend comes from pinot noir (40-50%, of which 10% is red wine), the roundness from meunier.
Pink, with amber highlights.
A lively bouquet of wild strawberry, raspberry and cherry reveals rose and a slight hint of pepper. Suppleness combines with firmness and a lingering freshness. This champagne is dry, with flavours of strawberries, raspberries, redcurrants, peach and a subtle note of eucalyptus coming forward.
STARTER, AS A STARTER, SERVE FOIE GRAS WITH FRESHLY MILLED BLACK PEPPER, OR A LIGHTLY CURED GRAVADLAX.
MAIN, SPICY INDIAN CURRIES HEAVY WITH SAFFRON, OR CHINESE DISHES WITH CASHEW AND MACADAMIA NUTS, ARE PERFECT MAIN-COURSE PARTNERS.
DESSERT, PAIR THIS CHAMPAGNE WITH SUGARY TREATS SUCH AS NOUGAT AND TOFFEE, OR, FOR A SAVOURY CONTRAST, CRUMBLY, SALTY BLUE CHEESES.
