25/125
The world’s best loved champagne. Golden straw yellow with green highlights. Vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit, freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers and the elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts).
2006 Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage
33/170
Initial notes of just ripened fruits. Peach, mango and banana are rounded out with mature notes of white pepper, flint and marzipan. As the wine breathes, the bouquetis refreshed with floral and delicately botanical notes of honeysuckle & bergamot. An expansive, succulent palate.
2006 Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé
35/199
Initial notes of biscuit and spice bread preceding aromas of cherry, prune and damson plum enriched by botanical nuances of wild herbs, rosemary, saffron and dried rose petals, along with a resinous, saline-inflected finish, come together to make this champagne a powerful, expansive, gracious wine.
