Moet & Chandon – Grand Vintage Rose 2012 75cl Bottle
Moet & Chandon – Grand Vintage Rose 2009 75cl Bottle from TheDrinkShop
A deep rose colour with hints of topaz. Coral reflections, beautifully dazzling with a fine, persistent bead.
The bouquet is delectably appetizing. Initial notes evoke scents of picking ripe berries under the summer sun: forest berries, wild strawberry, raspberry and currant rounded out with floral, botanical nuances of rhubarb, violet and poppy bonbons. A touch of vanilla and pink peppercorn underscore the vintages full-fledged maturity.
The palate evokes joy, calling to mind a carnival with its twirling rides and children laughing over displays of sweets: marshmallows, hard candy, cotton candy and caramel apples. Then come notes of nutmeg, dried fig and black cherry. The Pinot Noir expresses itself with a light, airy elegance, a soft, gentle texture and a finish.
