Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012
Each Grand Vintage is unique, expressing the Moët & Chandon Cellar Master's personal interpretation of the year. 2012 is the 74th Grand Vintage; and is exceptional in its maturity, complexity and charisma.
The 2012 Grand Vintage evokes the transition from spring to summer. It offers superb harmony, accompanied by softness and freshness.
This vintage’s red grape varieties were particularly good, especially the Meunier, which explains the dominant proportion in the blend. For once, the Chardonnay stays slightly in the background
Colour: Bright, pale yellow with glints of green, and fine, persistent bubbles.
Nose: Initial notes of fresh white flowers evolve towards sweet, fragrant pastries, with occasional scents of fresh walnuts, hazelnuts and biscuits. In parallel, the fruit is crisp, freshly ripened, with aromas of pear, white peach and nectarine.
Palate: The attack is soft, supple and fluid. It then develops texture, with a softness like cashmere or felt.
Finish: Finishes long and fresh with a lemony tail.
