Biscuits, peaches, white flowers. These were both enjoyed at lunch, to look at rather than eat in the floral instance, and some of the notes found in this eminently drinkable Champagne. Small bubbles, some acidity and focused flavors made for a lovely pairing with a delightful Labor Day Weekend spread.

So quaffable. Moët Brut Imperial has really become a reliable NV. White peach, citrus and a touch of brioche. Zippy. Long-ish finish.

Gosh...for some reason, I always expect this wine will be “meh” and it rarely is. This was a really nice bottle of NV Champagne.

Not bad at all for commercial champagne. Fresh, lively, fruit forward and to the point.

First wine on our Labor Day week cruise and from Royal Caribbean.

Pale yellow with tight, tiny bubbles. A touch yeasty on the nose, almost of biscuits and some nutty notes. Moderate acidity (5.5/10) with a light to light plus body. More going on in the palate with lemon notes, minerality, and some floral notes. Seems to be a bit tired. Short plus to medium finish. Drink till 2018.

Has a soft nose with a fruity clean smell. It goes down smoothly and has that dry finish at the end the way a brut is suppose to. Bubbly texture as it goes down with a very crisp sour apple taste.

Moët is not my favorite, but you can ways count on the consistency of this champagne. 90/100

Can't go wrong with this bottle. Always a crowd pleaser when on a budget.
