Moet Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 Champagne cl 75
he 2013 Grand Vintage from Moët & Chandon is an unexpectedly balanced expression of a particularly favorable vintage for Chardonnay. This Champagne contains Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in almost equal parts, enhanced by a touch of Meunier. After aging for 7 years in the cellar, it reveals a truly unique character.
Cellar aging time: 7 years
At least 6 months
Dosage: 5 g/liter
Slightly golden color
Light golden reflections, fine and persistent perlage.
The maturity of this Champagne is immediately evident, evoked by autumn notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, full-bodied nuts, honey and nougat. Next, a concentration of fruity notes is revealed, reminiscent of pickled lemon or well-ripened nectarine. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers and pine resin complete the bouquet.
A LIVELY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE
The palate is direct and energetic, supported by a lively yet delicate acidity and a refined structure encased in an elegant, grainy texture. The final note is characterized by a pleasant bitter hint of white grapefruit.
