A DISTINGUISHED, SPIRITED AND MISCHIEVOUS CHAMPAGNE
Like the arrival of the new century which brought with it an explosion of splendour, excitement and pleasure, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2000, the sixty-seventh since the launch of the first Vintage in 1842, is assertive, complex and mature, distinguished yet delightfully spirited and mischievous.
Immediately, its independence is evident, its difference apparent. Radiant, alluring and impertinent, it dazzles with presence, vitality, and confidence. As it asserts its eloquent splendour, it somehow also eludes, drawing you into a dance of aromas and flavours, where intense desire perfectly bonds with fascination.
It’s colour is golden yellow, enlivened with iridescent swirls.
On the nose, it is revealed layer by layer, as if moving from spring into summer. The first hints of gently roasted almonds and hazelnuts are gradually illuminated by tangy notes (grapefruit and mandarin orange) accented with hints of vegetal sweetness (rhubarb) and spices (peppermint, green coffee). And then the fruitiness radiantly asserts itself in an intense bouquet of tropical fruits (peach and mango) and mellow velvety flavors (jasmine and hawthorn).
The initial power – forthright, imposing, raw yet in no way brutal - gradually dissolves into warm, rich, creamy opulence, before the energy bursts forth once more, vibrating in a crisp finale with lingering hints of sap and liquorice.
Blend = Chardonnay 50%, Pinot Noir 34%, Pinot Meunier 16%
