Champagne Moet & Chandon Overview
+
Mot & Chandon Imprial NV is the world's most popular champagne: a guaranteed classic produced in astonishing numbers with remarkable consistency year upon year, batch upon batch. Production reached such a immense volume, the House had to invest in a new state-of-the-art winery designed solely for Mot Imprial NV. The most automated cellar in the region uses super modern equipment and winemaking innovations not seen anywhere else in the world. First introduced in the 1860s, Brut Imprial NV is an assemblage of over two hundred crus with around 20-30% carefully selected reserve wines added to complete the prestige blend.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Predominantly Grand & Premier Crus
Grape Varieties: 40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Reserve Wines: 20-30%
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 9 g/l

Tasting Note: The colour is a golden yellow with fine bubbles. On the nose fresh fruits combine with citrus notes of lemon and orange. On the palate more citrus flavour show through with great balance. The mid-palate opens to a focused flavour of refreshing acidity. A very clean finish with impressions of white peach.

“Mot's white golden NV Imprial Brut is an assemblage of equal parts of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier (30% to 40% of each) and a smaller proportion of Chardonnay. Bright and fresh fruit aromas of yellow apples, ripe pears and lemons, along with floral flavors and a hint of stones and almond croissant lead to a medium-bodied, elegant, pretty intense and well structured palate; it has nice freshness and generous fruit. The finish reveals a stimulating grip and a moderate sweetness (dosage is nine grams per liter). Very good and less sweet than in former years. (Lot LAI2C)”

“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.”
