As a gift, For a dinner
Grand Vintage Rosé 2015
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 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 2015: Grand Vintage Rosé 2015 evokes a powerful bouquet of red or black fruit, with warm notes of garrigue, faceted with violet nuances. Black fruit (blue plum, blackcurrant, blueberry, blackberry, fig) with a marked red tinge (wild strawberry), garrigue, heather.
An assertive and brilliant colour. A garnet pink colour with bluish highlights, fine bubbles and creamy foam.
The bouquet opens with aromas of red fruits. Fruity notes of fig and wild strawberry mingle with the spicy notes of aromatic pink peppercorns and allspice. With hints of flowery garrigue.
A powerful and complex palate. The fruit is intense, dark and deep. The tannins create angles that reveal multiple facets, similar to those of a rough diamond. The greedy bitterness of sloe and cranberry, tinged with mint and aniseed, refreshes the final note.
The champagne should not be rushed with overpowering flavours, but rather linked to its delicacy. The Grand Vintage Rosé 2015 will go wonderfully well with reduced juices, a hint of vegetable freshness (watercress, parsley, tarragon, artichoke hearts), the evocation of the garrigue without too much bitterness, aromatic peppers (Séchuan, Timut, long Java), bitter ingredients worked in the sweet universe (candied grapefruit zest with spices), a traditional cuisine in a modern minimalist version, inspired by India

Vinification : Maturation time in the cellar: 6 years. Ageing after disgorgement: 6 months minimum.

Characteristics : 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.
