Moderately intense nose of lemon curd kaffir lime leaf plenty of hot buttered toast and vague hints of chalk and crushed stone. The bubbles are calming a little in the mouth and the very crisp acidity is taking centre stage yet this wine is drinking beautifully now providing plenty of yeast and citrus flavour with a generous sprinkling of minerality. Long finish. Drink now - 2012. Tasted October 2008. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Deep smoky exotic bouquet of poached pear yellow plum nectarine lees and cured meat. Lush and creamy with intensely smoky orchard fruit flavors and a sweet/spicy cinnamon toast quality. Deep chewy and expansive on the finish where the cinnamon and toasty lees flavors echo with noteworthy persistence. Complex enough to enjoy now but has the depth and balance to repay aging.

Seductive graphite candied citrus and mineral aromas and flavors with hints of hazelnut and coffee mark this complex soft Champagne. Supple caressing the palate and ending with a ginger and hazelnut aftertaste. Drink now...

This particular example was displaying quite a bit of tertiary development and while there was no actual oxidation present, I suspect that it won’t be long before it appears. The delicious and highly complex flavors were by contrast much more interesting with fine vibrancy and still plenty of vigor to the supporting mousse that allows this to be drunk with pleasure as the citrus-inflected finish is delicious and impressively long. I have not seen a bottle of this since so I can’t say if the nose was just tired or whether it wasn’t representative because the overall impression was disjointed; this is not to say flawed or unenjoyable so much as the wine lacks harmony. now

Moet & Chandon

Since 1743 when it was founded, Moet & Chandon has been passing down unequaled winemaking savoir-faire and an innovative and pioneering spirit from generation to generation. Founder Claude Moet was the first to embody these values when he made his Champagne the most sought-after in Europe. With his grandson, Jean Remy Moët, a pioneering and visionary mind, Moet & Chandon became a major international champagne brand. This saga quickly transformed the family House into a worldwide symbol of success.

The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru, make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne. Underground, the Moet & Chandon cellars are the most extensive in the region. Extending more than 28 kilometers, they form a subterranean labyrinth where the wine metamorphoses under optimum conditions of humidity and temperature.

Moet & Chandon is part of the luxury brands group LVMH, whose other prestigious wine holdings include Chateau d’Yquem, Cheval Blanc, Cloudy Bay, Krug, and Newton Vineyard, to name a few.
