Moët's white golden NV Impérial Brut is an assemblage of equal parts of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (30% to 40% of each) and a smaller proportion of Chardonnay. Bright and fresh fruit aromas of yellow apples, ripe pears and lemons, along with floral flavors and a hint of stones and almond croissant lead to a medium-bodied, elegant, pretty intense and well structured palate; it has nice freshness and generous fruit. The finish reveals a stimulating grip and a moderate sweetness (dosage is nine grams per liter). Very good and less sweet than in former years. (Lot LAI2C)

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. The vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit is complemented by the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers. The elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts) adds to the delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple). The alluring caress of fine bubbles and the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and nuances of gooseberry make this a truly enjoyable champagne.
