Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Champagne 2012 is Moet & Chandon's 74th Vintage release. Each Grand Vintage is unique and possesses the distinctive, imitable qualities of that year’s outstanding grapes, qualities which have been elevated to their fullest expression through the savoir-faire, experience and expertise of Moët & Chandon and the House’s chef de cave.
The 2012 Grand Vintage evokes the transition from spring to summer. It offers superb harmony, accompanied by softness and freshness. This vintage’s red grape varieties were particularly good, especially the Meunier, which explains their dominant proportion in the blend. The Chardonnay stays in the background. Initial notes of fresh white flowers evolve towards sweet, fragrant pastries, with occasional scents of fresh walnuts, hazelnuts and biscuits. In parallel, the fruit is crisp, freshly ripened, with aromas of pear, white peach and nectarine.
