Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2015 Bottle (0.75L) | Box
Each Grand Vintage is unique, revealing a free and personal interpretation of the year by the Cellar Master. In Champagne, 2015 was marked by uncertainty, climate change, and intense heat. The resulting Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2015 with box, the 45th vintage in the House’s history, is endowed with incomparable character. It offers a sumptuous palate, the unexpected expression of a particularly warm year. Its story is one of controlled power, channelled intensity and irresistible light.
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.
Pinot Noir 52% of which 14% is red wine, Chardonnay 27%, Meunier 21%.
Maturation time in the cellar: 6 years. Ageing after disgorgement: 6 months minimum.
