Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013
|Brand||Moët & Chandon|
The effects of a cool year on this new vintage release is impressive in its texture, acidity and serious aging potential. Crisp apple and white-fruit flavors come together with a tight structure and a pure line of freshness. Drink from 2023.
Lots of strawberry, cherry and some rose petal on the nose and palate. It’s full, but not heavy. Very vinous and delicious. Lovely length, too. Fruity and vivid at the end. This is really excellent with real drink ability and intensity. Yet, it remains elegant. 35% Chardonnay and 21% Pinot Meunier, the rest Pinot Noir. Drink now.
This elegant Champagne displays citrus, mineral and toast character in equal measure, with bright notes of preserved lemon and verbena layered with smoke, chalk, brioche and nut flavors. The interplay is backed by deftly knit acidity, riding the fine and creamy mousse through to the lingering finish. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Disgorged May 2019. Drink now through 2030.
