Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012 rosé 75 cl
Each Grand Vintage is unique, the Moët & Chandon Cellar Master’s free, personal interpretation of the fruits of a particular year. Grand Vintage Rosé 2012, the House’s 43rd vintage rosé, stands out for its maturity, complexity and charisma. Grand Vintage Rosé 2012 is evocative of the transition from spring to summer, with a certain delicacy accompanied by freshness and nuances of coral.
In 1842 Moët & Chandon created one of the first vintage champagnes for British and American connoisseurs, who appreciated more mature wines. The distinctive expression of a single year’s grapes, each new vintage contributes to the House’s legendary heritage of crafting the finest champagnes: the Grand Vintage Collection.
Pinot Noir 42% (of which 13% red wine), Chardonnay 35%, Meunier 23%
The wines made from black grapes, especially the Meunier, were particularly good, which is why they make up a major part of the assemblage. For once, the Chardonnay remains slightly in the background.
Light color: coral pink with nuances of orange and a fine, persistent bead.
A fresh bouquet: the first refreshing notes of pink grapefruit and blood orange are followed by notes of small red stone fruits such as Morello cherry before finishing on more botanical nuances of wild strawberry and rhubarb.
An harmonious palate: the first impression is harmonious, soft and silky. The initially light, delicate texture asserts itself in a lightly astringent finish with notes of stone fruits such as Victoria plum or damson plum.
