Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Brut NV
Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay | Alc: 12.0%
Champagne, France

Winemaker’s Notes:
Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial displays a pink color with amber highlights. Lively and intense, the bouquet exudes red fruits (wild strawberry, raspberry, cherry) with floral nuances of rose and a slight hint of pepper. On the palate, the wine shows a juicy intensity of berries (strawberry, raspberry, red currant) rounded out by the fleshiness and firmness of peach and the freshness of a subtle note of mint.

Critical Acclaim:
“Crisp acidity defines this well-knit rosé, making a counterpoint to the lightly plush texture of the creamy mousse, with flavors of steeped raspberry, orange peel and pickled ginger showing a hint of smoke on the finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now.” 91 Pts – Wine Spectator

“Salmon-orange color with aromas of raspberries, strawberries, pomegranates and pink grapefruit. Bright and fruity with creamy bubbles. Lively. Very gently off-dry. Blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay, with red wine from pinot noir and pinot meunier. 21 months on lees. 9g/l dosage. Drink now.” 91 pts – James Suckling

“Textbook from the mousse onward, this salmon-hued blend of primarily Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier with a smaller percentage of Chardonnay emits aromas of raspberry and yeastiness that make room for flashes of apricot, almond, and floral notes; the palate, meanwhile, sits in the center of the Venn diagram linking consummate freshness to red-berry fruitiness to elegance, framed by the slightest of tannins.” 93 pts – The Somm Journal
