Blend : The blend of Rosé Impérial is based on the intensity of Pinot Noir (40 to 50% including 10% red wine), the fruitiness of Pinot Meunier (30 to 40% including 10% red wine) and the finesse of Chardonnay (10 to 20%).
Vinification : Complete, generous and dynamic, Moët & Chandon wines benefit from the know-how of the oenologists in the different stages of the wine-making process. The systematic carrying out of malolactic fermentation naturally ensures a slight reduction in the classic acidity of Champagne wines which can block access to other sensations. The palate is softer. The systematic use of Pinot Meunier in the blend brings its juicy and fleshy texture, drives and enhances the richness of the Chardonnay, and results in wines of beautiful maturity. The maturation process, which lasts about twice as long for each cuvée as the legal period, enriches and softens the wine. A dosage precisely adapted to each cuvée provides the final touch to refine the whole. From the first sip, Moet & Chandon wines offer an abundance of sensations, without barriers to overcome, without austerity.
Characteristics : Refreshing must be gradual so as not to "break" its foam and bouquet. From a discreet to medium attack, the wine develops towards the heart of the mouth, the profile of the wine takes shape in curves, the intensity fluctuates, the fullness is modulated, the perceptions are prolonged and stretched towards a finish that is invariably clean and frank, leaving the palate clean. Moët & Chandon wines reveal this clean profile with each sip. The gradual appearance of various sensations: during the tasting, the wine breathes, the aromas evolve in the glass. Between the first and tenth sip, the wine warms up and opens up to the ambient oxygen. At the same time, the sensitivity of the palate will also change. This will be the moment for the wine to make new organoleptic revelations, to underline the suppleness and roundness of Moët & Chandon wines, always fading in and out.
