Mot & Chandon Imperial NV Champagne

The famous Champagne house Mot & Chandon was first founded in 1743 by Claude Mot, a wine trader, and was originally called Mot et Cie (Mot and Co). Claude's grandson, Jean Remy Mot was the person to drive the house onto the heights it has reached today. Mot & Chandon is the worlds's largest producers of Champagne, producing over 26 million bottles per year. The 1,190 hectares of rich limestone soil, 50% of which is classed as Grand Cru and 25% Premier Cru make up the largest vineyard area in Champagne, not only does the house own the most amount of land but also the largest extent of cellars, some 28 kilometers.

Following the introduction of the concept of a vintage champagne in 1840, Mot marketed its first vintage in 1842. Mot & Chandon Brut Imprial NV was first introduced in the 1860's. Brut Imprial is an assemblage of over 200 crus, formed of the three champagne grape varieties. Around 20-30% of carefully selected reserve wines complete the blend.

The colour is a golden yellow with fine bubbles, on the nose very fresh fruits combine with citrus notes of lemon and orange. On the palate, flavours of fruits and hints of more citrus, great balance leading to the mid-palate which opens to a focused flavour of refreshing acidity. On the finish, very clean and impressions of white peach.

Grape Varieties: 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Dosage: 9 g/L

“Distinctive, slightly bruised apple scent. Fleshy on the palate. Reassuringly good quality for a leading brand. (RH)”

“Worldwide still the biggest-selling Champagne (28 million bottles a year), this well-made wine is ripe and full of fruit. Produced under the direction of chef de cave Benot Gouez (Wine Enthusiast Winemaker of Year in 2013), it has flavors of almonds and toast, with crisp acidity. The aftertaste brings grapefruit freshness.”

90/100
“(roughly 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay; 9 g/l dosage; LAIBG): Light, bright yellow. Musky pear and toasty lees on the nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and open-knit, with a hint of bitter lemon pith adding back-end cut. Finishes on a gently smoky note, with very good cling and focus and a hint of bitter quinine. This must be the best example of this bottling that I've had in years, if not decades. In the past the Imperial Brut received a dosage of 12 g/l, but no more; in fact, there's talk that in the near future it may be dropped down as far as 7 g/l.”
