Moet & Chandon Extra Brut Grand Vintage 2015
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2015 evokes an awakening, the first rays of a day full of promise – a luminous morning aura. The 76th vintage in the history of the House, it is an initiation into Moët & Chandon’s journey of light.
2015 was a harvest of exceptional red-skinned grapes. They showed remarkable maturity with a powerful, fruity nose and full-bodied finish.
On the eye: A light golden hue with fine, persistent bubbles.
On the nose: Initial notes of breadcrumbs, fresh brioche and almond paste give way to elderflower and jasmine, then to fruit such as white peach and watermelon.
On the palate: Generous, ample and supple in structure, reminiscent of the cotton flower. Floral, aniseed and mentholated nuances bring lightness and freshness. The finish lingers on a delicate bitterness evoking fresh almonds.
This champagne calls for delicate flavors that will not overwhelm the palate. It beckons delicate spices that complement the tenderness of a fish or meat dish, slow cooked. Ideal choices are delicate and exotic white fruits, light and herby jus, small green vegetables.
Varietals: 44% Pinot Noir, 32% Chardonnay, 24% Pinot Meunier
Aging: 6 years
