Moet & Chandon Champagne Imperial Rose 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Varietal Chardonnay, Pinot Noir Category Sparkling Wine Region France : Champagne : Epernay Producer Moet & Chandon Alcohol 12.5% Color: Coppery pink with light orange highlights. On the nose: The aroma of malt rapidly leads into that of well-ripened fruit, nectarine and wild strawberries, complemented by smoky, peaty accents. On the palate: In a paradox that typifies the vintage, concentration and movement vie each other with an affirmation of boldness and authority. The tastes progress with strength-tense, radiant and sharp. The finish is firm, underscored with a slightly vanilla-spicy note.

  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

Fans of bold wine will love this Champagne. It's made in a full-bodied, assertive style that blends overt toasty, earthy aromas with bracing, dry fruit flavors and a robust but smooth texture. Drink now through 2003. Wine Spectator. A Champagne Blend wine from Champagne in France. 1990 Moet Chandon Dom Perignon 1500ml

Fascinating. Mature notes of mushroom, corrupt cherry and forest undergrowth evoke an aged red Burgundy. Firm and medium-bodied, yet softening and with little effervescence, it fades by the finish, but the bouquet alone is worth the price of admissio... Wine Spectator.

This is the great 1990 DP with an extra 4 years of aging on the lees. It is a youthful wine, light in color, rich and honeyed on the nose. Honeyed lemon on the palate, with toasted brioche, leads to intense, cyrstalline minerality.
