150 Years of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut
This year, France’s pioneering Champagne house Moët & Chandon celebrates its 150th anniversary – an incredible milestone. And what better way to celebrate New Year’s Eve and Moët & Chandon’s accomplishment than with a classic bottle of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut Champagne ($43.99).
Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut was first created in 1869, named Impérial in honor of Napoleon, a close friend of the Champagne House’s Moët family. For the 150th bottling of Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut, the assemblage was created from more than 100 different wines, according to the winemaker, “of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines specially selected selected to enhance its maturity, complexity and consistency.” The assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
In this beautiful sparkling wine, white flowers and aromas of brioche mingle with citrus and apples on the nose. On the tongue, there are bright white fruit flavors with hints of gooseberry. Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut would be a delightful Champagne to sip this New Year’s Eve, or any other time.
