Moet & Chandon Champagne Grand Vintage Rose 2004

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

The 2004 Brut Grand Vintage is another beautifully delineated Champagne from this historic house. Pears pastry almonds flowers and sweet spices all flesh out in a Champagne that is impressively textured and creamy for a vintage that in general yielded more focused wines. The very slightly oxidative style is warm open and resonant especially on the finish. Antonio Galloni.

  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

Bright yellow. Heady complex bouquet of fresh nectarine pear and melon with notes of smoky lees and white flowers adding complexity. Bright mineral-driven orchard and pit fruit flavors show impressive depth and focus picking up notes of iodine lemon pith and anise with air. Finishes on a chalky note with excellent focus and lingering sweet butter citrus fruit and smoke nuances. It s a great pleasure to see this iconic house return to strong form. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
