Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 blanc 75 cl
Autumnal - Energetic - Chiselled
The colour is yellow, slightly golden, the bubbles are fine and persistent.
The ripeness is expressed immediately, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, fatty nuts, honey and nougatine. Then the fruit reveals itself, concentrated, like a candied lemon with salt or a fully matured nectarine. Hints of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the aromatic bouquet.
The palate is straightforward, energetic, supported by a beautiful, lively but delicate acidity, underpinned by a chiselled structure, wrapped in a finely grained texture. The fine bitterness of the white pample- mousse holds the final note.
