Product Overview

Festive edition of Moet Chandon Imperial brut in an elegant golden box. A seasonal 2017 release.

The non-vintage Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut Champagne is the House's iconic champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies Moët & Chandon's unique style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate, and its elegant maturity. Created from more than 100 different wines, of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines specially selected to enhance its maturity, complexity, and constancy, the assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varietals. In the glass, it is a golden straw yellow with green highlights. The sparkling bouquet shows the vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit; the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers; and the elegance of brioche, cereal, and fresh nuts. A generoujs palate combines the delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple); the alluring caress of fine bubbles; and the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and nuances of gooseberry.

Varietal Composition: 30-40% Pinot Noir, 30-40% Pinot Meunier, 20-30% Chardonnay
Appellation: Champagne AOC
Reserve Wine: 20-30%
Dosage: 9 g/L

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"A rich note of grilled nut meets flavors of Asian pear, preserved lemon and mineral on the palate of this creamy Champagne, driven by a firm streak of refreshing acidity. Drink now through 2022." -AN, 11/30/19

90 Points - Vinous
"(roughly 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay; 9 g/l dosage; LAIBG): Light, bright yellow. Musky pear and toasty lees on the nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and open-knit, with a hint of bitter lemon pith adding back-end cut. Finishes on a gently smoky note, with very good cling and focus and a hint of bitter quinine. This must be the best example of this bottling that I've had in years, if not decades. In the past the Imperial Brut received a dosage of 12 g/l, but no more; in fact, there's talk that in the near future it may be dropped down as far as 7 g/l." -JR, Jan/2015
