Moët & Chandon Champagne Blend Champagne 1976

Winemaker's Notes:

Light yellow. Good, fine and persistent, mousse. A somewhat shy nose of light white and yellow fruit, lemon peel, and a slight nutty touch. Good definition in mouth with more white fruit and good acid. A very classy and charming champagne

  Moet & Chandon is one of the most well-known luxury champagne producers in the word. With over 2,500 acres of vineyards and an annual champagne production of 26,000,000 bottles, Moet & Chandon lives, breathes, and, of course, drinks champagne. The House of Moet was founded in 1743 by Claude Moet, but it wasn’t until his grandson, Jean-Remy Moet, took over that the company really took off and became an international luxury brand. Jean-Remy Moet strove to bring the pleasure of champagne to everyone he could, forming partnerships with both French and international clients on a regular basis. When Jean-Remy Moet sold the House of Moet to his son Victor Moet and his son-in-law Pierre-Gabriel Chandon in 1833, the ensuing partnership formed Moet & Chandon. Shortly after the new branding, in 1842, Moet & Chandon released its first vintage champagne, leading the way to even higher-quality champagne. In 1921, they produced their first prestige cuvée under the brand Dom Pérignon, named after a Benedictine monk who was an important pioneer for champagne. The first vintage released for sale was in 1936, and today it is managed by winemaker Richard Geoffroy. Read less

Medium+ lemon-straw colour. There's a touch more vibrancy here on the nose than with the 1985, beginning with an abundance of toasty /yeasty notes and leading to complex suggestions of ginger-nut biscuit, marzipan, lemongrass and a whiff of chalkboar...

(Original Release). The 1976-Dom Perignon (Original Release) was a revelation. It showed the lightest color in this flight, which could have been taken as a clue. It showed unreal freshness and vibrancy, with soaring aromatics and notes of white peac... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
