A powerful, multidimensional champagne
Yellow, with a golden glow.
Coffee, praline and Viennese pastry give way to citrus peel and kumquat, followed by mineral-tinged aromas redolent of the sea.
The silky, opulent palate expresses notes of candied citrus fruits, plums and nectarines, dried figs and dates, and vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. A precise finish has a lightly bitter saltiness.

A FRUITY AND INTENSE NOSE
The first notes start tropical, with the powerful fruitiness of mango and pineapple. They then leave room for the generosity of stone fruits such as nectarine, then to an original raspberry note.
THE GENEROUS PALATE COMBINES SWEETNESS AND FRESHNESS
After the fleshy and delicious fullness of a fresh fruit salad comes the sweetness of caramel and quince jelly. The fresh acidity of grapefruit and ginger creates a lively sensation on the palate.
Moët & Chandon Nectar Impérial Rose
A GOURMAND NOSE
The nose is plunged into a basket of ripe blackberries: wild strawberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants release their summer aromas. Notes of sunny yellow peaches then become more pronounced. This crescendo continues and morphs into mouthwatering nuance of strawberry jam.
THE PALATE COMBINES RICHNESS AND FRESHNESS
Intense and tasty, the sensation of red berries lingers on the palate for a long time. It is partnered by the sweetness of nutmeg and caramel. A nice contrast to finish, with the acidulous freshness contributed by a burst of redcurrant.
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013
The wine’s maturity is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is then revealed, reminiscent of a mealy apple or a beautifully ripe pear. Scents of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the aromatic bouquet.
LIVELY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE
The palate is direct and energetic, supported by lively yet delicate acidity, and a finely polished structure, enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasant hint of white grapefruit bitterness.
Moët & Chandon Rose Impérial
A DELICATE NOSE
The lively and intense bouquet is full of red fruits: wild strawberry, raspberry, cherry, etc. Then, a scattering of rose petals inspire floral nuances, underscored with a slight hint of pepper.
AN EXPRESSIVE, INTENSE AND SUPPLE PALATE
Strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant: the juicy and persistent intensity of the red berries explodes onto the palate, joined by the fleshy, then firm peach aromas. The finish is structured by the freshness of a subtle peppery and minty note.
