Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the cellar master’s personal, free interpretation in service of the singular qualities of that year’s grapes.
Grand Vintage Rosé 2012 perfectly embodies the three essential values of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintages spirit
A voluptuous colour; coppery pink with glimmers of antique gold. An opulent bouquet; notes of blackcurrant and blackberry.
Rich warm nuances of spice bread and dried figs. A hint of liquorice.
A round yet delicate palate: Medium-bodied, slightly tannic structured with a subtle tanginess.
A refined finish with notes of dark chocolate.
45% Pinot Noir (of which 22% red wine), 31% Chardonnay, 24% Pinot Meunier
Plentiful, in excellent health and beautifully ripe were the key characteristics of the 2012 harvest. Throughout the entire growing season the weather was unusually mild and particularly favourable to thriving vines and exquisitely mature grapes. After a somewhat dry spring the vines flourished in the early summer rains and subsequent hot sunny weather. Very warm temperatures later in the season created the ideal conditions for a harvest which was both extremely abundant and at the perfect stage of ripeness.
