Moet & Chandon : Brut Imperial

The aromatic finesse and freshness of an iconic Brut champagne

The producer

Moët Champagne (the House of Moet & Chandon) was founded in 1743 by Claude Moët, a visionary wine merchant, who quickly made Moet Chandon a reference in the highest courts of Europe. A few years later his grandson, Jean-Rémy Moët, developed the reputation of the house internationally. Notably, Jean-Rémy Moët notably created the iconic cuvée of the house, the Moet and Chandon Imperial, in honor of the Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, who visited the estate on several occasions and who allegedly invented the tradition of bashing open a bottle of Moët Chandon champagne to celebrate a victory with his troops. Owned by the LVMH group since 1987, the Moet and Chandon Champagne House produces, from a very rigorous selection of Champagne terroirs, unique cuvées recognized across borders for their quality and for their seductive personality. Since 1996, the Champagne House has also produced a Moet Rose Champagne, the Moet Rosé.

The wine

The Moët Chandon Impérial Brut is made from a selection of over 200 different parcels, representing the finest terroirs of Champagne. Its dosage is 9 g / liter.

The blend

The Moet Imperial is made from a blend of Pinot Noir (30 to 40%), Pinot Meunier (30 to 40%) and Chardonnay (20 to 30%). This blend is completed with 20 to 30% reserve wines in order to refine the intensity, richness and consistency of this exceptional champagne.

The tasting

Color

The Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial champagne sports a beautiful golden yellow color, with beautiful green reflections.

Nose

On the nose, this champagne combines aromas of white fruit (apple, pear, white peach) and citrus (lemon) with subtle floral (lime blossoms) and pastry (brioche and fresh nuts).

Palate

A tasty and delicate palate harmoniously combines generosity and subtlety, amplitude and freshness. This is a perfectly balanced champagne.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Moët's white golden NV Impérial Brut is an assemblage of equal parts of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (30% to 40% of each) and a smaller proportion of Chardonnay. Bright and fresh fruit aromas of yellow apples, ripe pears and lemons, along with floral flavors and a hint of stones and almond croissant lead to a medium-bodied, elegant, pretty intense and well structured palate; it has nice freshness and generous fruit. The finish reveals a stimulating grip and a moderate sweetness (dosage is nine grams per liter). Very good and less sweet than in former years. (Lot LAI2C)
