    Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2015 with gift box is the reflection of a harvest of black grapes of exceptional quality which revealed a remarkable maturity, with a powerful and fruity nose and a fleshy final note. The chromaticity of the Grand Vintage 2015: Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2015 evokes, through its freshness, a bright, almost blinding luminosity within a tender and vegetal bouquet suggesting a delicate white-green universe accompanied by various shades of white and yellow. Luminous radiance. The pastry yellow of a calisson. The soft green of honeydew melon, aniseed. The white of an elderflower.

    The year 2015, marked by an unprecedented heat wave, offered black grapes of remarkable quality, sublimating the Pinot Noir, the majority in this blend. With 44% Pinot Noir, we have to go back to 2009 (50%) and 1996 (50%) to have such a high proportion. On the other hand, as Chardonnay suffered more from the drought, its share is rather low (32%). We have to go back to 2003 (28%) and 1999 (31%), two other sunny years, to find such a low proportion.
    To the eye

    A pale and bright colour. A bright lemon yellow colour, luminous reflections, fine bubbles and creamy foam.

    On the nose

    A soft and vegetal bouquet. The bouquet is initially restrained and suggests a soft and fresh white-green universe. The initial bakery notes (breadcrumbs, fresh brioche, marzipan) gradually extend to floral notes of elderberry and jasmine, then giving way to fruitiness, with notes of white peach and watermelon. Notes of garrigue at dawn complete the ensemble.

    In the mouth

    A frank and enveloping mouth. The attack in the mouth is frank and confident. The material is ample and supple, without heaviness, evoking the cotton flower. The enveloping and seductive texture is enhanced by floral, aniseed and mentholated nuances which bring lightness and freshness for such a sunny vintage. The end of the palate lingers on a slightly seductive note and a delicate bitterness evoking almond.

    Food & champagne pairings

    Avoid rushing the champagne with too powerful flavours, and instead link it to its delicacy. The Grand Vintage 2015 will go wonderfully well with melting meat and fish, white fruits and delicate exotic fruits, small green vegetables (broad beans, peas, etc.), light juices flavoured with herbs, a hint of vegetal (watercress, parsley, tarragon, artichoke hearts).

    Ideal operating temperature

    To appreciate all its finesse and aromas, champagne should be enjoyed chilled (but not iced). Depending on the cuvée, the ideal serving temperature is between 8 and 12°C.

    Potential of keeping

    Like all wines, champagne can be kept for varying lengths of time, depending on the type. Under optimal storage conditions, champagne can be kept for 1 to 2 years for Brut cuvées, and up to 4/5 years or even longer for vintage and prestige champagnes. Whatever happens, rest assured that you'll never be able to open your champagne too early, as the Champagne Houses only release their cuvées when they have reached perfect ripeness and are ready for immediate consumption.
