This French champagne, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006, lives up to the high standards of the Moët et Chandon brand name.
This champagne has been crafted from the three Queen grape varietals of Champagne and from one single and exceptional vintage of wine.
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006 Brut champagne has been aged for a minimum of 48 months in its bottle where the champagne also received its secondary fermentation.
|Appearance||This champagne presents a pale golden colored body that casts golden reflections.|
|Nose||Nutty and toasted aromatics that soon give way to sweet and fresh citric aromas such as mandarin orange and grapefruit. A vegetal background intertwined with delicate menthol aromas. As the wine opens we perceive new fragrant exotic fruit aromatics that are presented alongside jasmine and fine pastry notes.|
|Palate||This Grand Vintage champagne enters the palate with great elegance. There are pleasant creamy notes alongside warming sensations that support the very fine effervescence of this champagne. There is a persistent aftertaste of over ripened fruits alongside hints of liquorice.|
|Our personal opinion||Our experience with this very elegant and fine champagne, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage, can be described as love at first sight. This champagne is perfect for memorable occasions.|
