"Moët & Chandon has been on a serious roll" - Antonio Galloni
There might be no better example of class and elegance than a vintage Rosé Champagne, and the 2006 Grand Vintage Rosé from Moet & Chandon is one of the greatest expressions of the style to be had for under a hundred dollars. While current release Dom Perignon Roséis routinely over $250, this Moet & Chandon is produced with the same exacting standards and at under $80 is truly a steal for Champagne of this pedigree.
Moet & Chandon is one of Champagne’s most historic houses and their vintage wines are only made in the best years, while the ‘Grand’ Vintage only uses the top selection of grapes. 2006 was a superb year for a Grand Vintage Champagne, as it produced “powerful, rich, explosive wines” (Vinous) that were deserving of the 7 years Moet & Chandon aged them before release.
Once you catch the aromas of candied orange, brioche, and wildflower coming out of your glass you’ll agree that this Rosé Champagne is a joyous beverage. It offers up the superb class and pedigree of one of Champagne’s finest Houses, with the versatile drinkability of Rosé. Whether as an aperitif, paired with a main or dessert, or even as a special toast, you would be hard pressed to find a vintage Rosé with this sort of quality and pedigree. We have a few cases on hand, so get yours today! Cheers!
