Good champagne from Moet & Chandon. We certainly like this one more than the oh-so-en-vogue Veuve Clicquot, but less than the M & C Nectar Imperial

Vivid gold with a strong bead. Lemon meringue, cherry pit and smoky minerals on the nose, along with a suave, nutty undertone. Fleshy citrus and orchard fruit flavors are firmed by a bitter fruit skin quality and sweetened by floral honey. Less rich than I would expect from this vintage, with good finishing lift and cling.
A new Champagne release from the Moët Champagne House. Surely to be another hit among Moët fans.
A rich, opulent style, offering peach, apricot and ginger flavors. Full-bodied and muscular, yet with a firm structure keeping it all focused and a nice tangy finish. Drink now through 2018.
Moët’s vintage, from the hot, low-yielding 2003 vintage, has an unusually high percentage of Pinot Meunier (43%), suggesting there is a distinct character to the year. It’s certainly powerful and intense, soft initially, hinting at toast and yeast, the fruit almost sweet, even though the wine is a brut style. It is the rich strawberry flavor that’s most surprising on a wine that really has integrated impressively.
The estate’s 2003 Grand Vintage offers attractive notes of honey, smoke, apricots in a full-bodied, generous personality. There is good length, yet slightly bitter tannins on the finish detract from the wine’s overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2013.
With its high percentage of Champagne’s third grape, Pinot Meunier, as a result of the growing conditions of 2003, this is a great wine that is developing fast. It has more toast, less fruit, although its richness and weight are finely in balance with a yeasty cookie dough character.
