THE VINTAGE

Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 is a champagne marked by a late harvest. It encapsulates a year of waiting, a year of anticipation. The season shines through in its flavors and aromas, while its maturity is expressed through its autumnal notes, golden hue, and persistent bubbles.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: A light golden hue with fine, persistent bubbles.

On the nose: The maturity of this champagne is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey, and nougat. White fruit is revealed next, reminiscent of a beautifully ripe apple or pear. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers, and pine sap complete the bouquet.

On the palate: The palate is direct and energetic, supported by a lively yet delicate acidity and a finely chiseled structure, and enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasantly bitter hint of white grapefruit.
