Moët & Chandon

Impérial Brut Champagne Blend

This is a tasty and easy drinking Champagne.

Dark yellow in color with a golden hue.

Medium plus in body with high acidity, and medium sized bubbles.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing citrus, green apples, light grapefruits, herbs, yeast, brioche, sea salt, spices, vegetables and minerals.

Nice finish with limes and bitter herbs.

Tangy and good by itself or with food.

Really enjoyed the nose, even more than the palate. Better after 30 minutes of airtime.

Wine Enthusiasts 90 points. Wine Spectator 90 points.

A great choice to pair with fresh seafood.

12% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$43.

Grand Brut Champagne Blend

Really nice. Toast and Brie on the nose, big tart apple fruit, nutty, minerality and great acid. Wish I had come cheese or seafood, but great on its own :) — 16 days ago

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

You already know what it is. There’s not much to even say about it because you already know it’s delicious. Quite delicious. Romance in a bottle? Absolutely. Pale copper with salmon accents and energetic effervescence. The nose features sumptuous cranberries and raspberries, as well as baked apple tarts. Some wild strawberry notes to go with the brioche aromas.

This is no hidden gem of a wine, you’ve all tasted it before and you know how good and reliable it is. A benchmark and always impressive. Pleasing, not racy, acidity and that hard to describe essence of quality. 40/30/30 CH/PN/PM and those red grapes truly shine here. The palate references the nose with more sparkling red berries and autolytic notes. Impressively long finish of pure elegance. Flabbergastingly lovely.

Belle Epoque Brut Champagne 2012

Still a bit sharp, but I did enjoy the complexity and bit of apricot (or maybe it was peach?) amidst the citrusy acidity, this being my first bottle of Belle Époque. Bought this among four bottles I tried over my 40th birthday weekend. — 8 months ago

Brut Rosé Champagne Blend

Hard to beat this wine in this setting! Courtyard dining at TFL. October 2020 disgorgement is utter perfection with an ultra complex aromatic profile and chiseled palate with riveting energy and a seamlessly balanced expression of layered rich red berry fruit and chalky minerality. VO base with a touch of still Pinot from Francis Egly. Magic every time. — 8 days ago

Initial Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

The three of us from Omaha were presented this wine upon arrival, double-blind fashion in large burgundy-style glasses. The appearance was a burnished gold color with slight visual signs of gas only when agitated. On the nose, there are signs of oxidization with a slightly cheesy and nutty thing on the nose along with some bruised apple and pear. The palate was like fireworks. Layers of fruits, nuts, spices and the creamiest of textures. At first, based on the smell and the appearance, I thought this might be a vintage Champagne, 1996 or even possibly 1990. However, after tasting it, I was compelled to shift direction as it reminded me of some of the more remarkable NV wines made in a solera-style like Bereche “Reflan d’Antan” or Selosse “Initial”. Welp…basically nailed it. How I wish this wine could be in my life more often. — 13 days ago

Substance Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay

D: 7/17 A real privilege to have this so soon after the last; burgundy glass this time vs. bulbous white wine. First 90mins were similarly sublime, but then did close a little before livening up a more citrus forward fashion and then retracing its steps back into the sublime at around 3hrs. — a month ago
