Moët Impérial is the House’s iconic champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies Moët & Chandon’s unique style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.

Created from more than 100 different wines, of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines specially selected to enhance its maturity, complexity and constancy, the assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varietals :

The body of Pinot Noir: 30 to 40%

The suppleness of Pinot Meunier: 30 to 40%

The finesse of Chardonnay: 20 to 30%

An elegant colour: golden straw yellow with green highlights

A sparkling bouquet: the vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit, the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers, the elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts)

A generous palate combining sumptuousness and subtlety, the delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple), the alluring caress of fine bubbles, the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and nuances of gooseberry.

Reviews:

"Light yellow. Smoky scents of buttery apple and pear, with suggestions of nutmeg and fresh thyme. Full and thick on the palate, showing ripe apple, buttered bread and a whiff of cherry that lingers through the finish. The weight and richness of this cuvee suggest that it would be better at the table than as an aperitif." -Rated 86, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
