Description & Technical Information

Moët & Chandon are the most famous producers in Champagne. First founded in 1743 by Claude Moët, it was the marketing acumen of Rémy Moët which initiated the brand's international fame and mass volume production. Since then, Moët & Chandon have grown by acquiring other champagne estates, selling them forward and keeping their prestigious vineyards. Such large-scale production could only operate under the leadership of a truly superb Chef de Caves and in Benoît Gouez, Moët have one of the best. With a ten-man oenologist team led by chief Dom Pérignon winemaker Richard Geoffroy, Benoît has access to the most academic minds and palates in the region, no doubt a huge driving factor behind his success. Now proprietors to the largest amount of land: some 1,190-hecatres of rich limestone soil, and the largest extent of cellars: over twenty eight kilometres.

This incredibly rare trilogy from Moët & Chandon offers champagne connoisseurs and collectors alike the opportunity to undertake a thirty-year journey with this most famous of Champagne Houses. The unique Grand Vintage Trilogy features a 75cl bottle of each of the following three outstanding champagne vintages: Grand Vintage 1988, Grand Vintage 1998 and Grand Vintage 2008, all beautifully presented in a branded black wooden case.

Moët & Chandon 2002: Vanilla notes on the nose gradually expand into darker toastier notes of roasted almonds. On the palate deep flavours of fleshy fruits, peaches and grapefruit. There is a superb silky texture that combines with the full bodied Pinot Noir.

Moët & Chandon 2012: Hints of white flowers and sweet pastry. A supple and soft-textured champagne, its initial sweetness gives way to a more structured acidity. A persistent finish reveals zesty notes of pink grapefruit and peaches.

Moët & Chandon Rosé 2012: Coral pink with a suggestion of orange. Fresh hints of pink grapefruit and blood orange with morello cherry and wild strawberry throughout. The midpalate has bold plum and red fruits.

Discover their similarities for yourself with this prestige and rare Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy case, which includes three 75cl bottles as described, presented in a beautifully crafted and branded black wooden case (as shown in the picture on the left).

Antonio Galloni
“The 2012 Grand Vintage is a very pretty, high-toned Champagne. Surprisingly nervous for this radiant vintage, the 2012 is going to need a bit of time to be at its best. Some of that may be attributable to early release of the 2012, which was bottled after only five years on its lees rather than the more customary seven or so because the house did not bottle either a 2010 or 2011 Grand Vintage, and the necessities of the market are what they are. Lemon confit, white flowers, and mint gradually open up in the glass. This is an especially taut style for the Grand Vintage, which is usually creamier and more open-knit in the early going. The blend is 41% Chardonnay, 36% Meunier and 33% Pinot Noir. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: February, 2018. ”

“Open, inviting, sweetly fruity, maturing nose with fine pastry, grilled almond notes but also a vegetal edge. Concentrated, mouth-filling palate of great generosity and textural smoothness. Long-lingering sweet finish full of toast laden tropical fruit. Highly enjoyable today. ”

“More Meunier than usual, with 26%, also 41% Chardonnay and 33% Pinot Noir. Disgorged February 2018. They also specify this date and the dosage on the back label nowadays. For a long time they didn’t claim the Extra Brut category but since the 2009 vintage they have printed Extra Brut on the front label.
Really quite a rich nose with very light smokiness. Then very bright fruit with tangerine notes on the nose and then strong acidity. Very punchy and nice dry finish, 5 g/l.”

“Deep rosé colour, showing quite youthful upon launch. Brightly fruity nose full of forest berries, summer fruit and marzipan, for the time being sweet primary fruitiness dominating. The palate has a touch of tannin and feels dry at 5g/l dosage. Structured and fresh possessing great ageing capacity. ”

“26% Pinot Noir, 51% Chardonnay, 23% Meunier. Dosage 5.5 g/l. This is not the original release but is a late release disgorged in May 2017. 15 years on lees: 'a pretty sweet spot'.
Very complex nose. Meaty, rich and (just) sufficient acidity. Long and complete. Chewy finish. Needs food! Very similar analytical profile at harvest as the 2012, apparently.”

“Disgorged in October 2018 – and we're very grateful for this information! 42% Pinot Noir, of which 13% was still, plus 35% Chardonnay and 23% Pinot Meunier. Five years on the lees and a relatively low dosage of 5 g/l.
Quite a deep bronzey-pink. Smells much richer than you expect from such a low-dosage wine. It also tastes richer. Opulent wine that's quite ready now. No real need to age this. Though the balance is fine for now. Mouth-filling and creditable.”

“12.5% alcohol. 41% Chardonnay, 26% Pinot Meunier, 33% Pinot Noir. Dosage 5 g/litre. Disgorged February 2018. The 74th release from this house. Lovely finesse here. Fruity with sweet citrus and pear notes, as well as some ripe peach and apricot hints. This has depth and generosity, and it’s really accessible, but there’s also some fine toast and bread complexity, and fine nuttiness. There’s a touch of nougat, too. Finishes long and fresh with a lemony tail. It’s rare that Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier are this high in the blend, but they work well here with the relatively low dosage.”
93/100
William Kelley
“Disgorged in May 2017, the 2002 Extra Brut Grand Vintage Collection has acquired appreciable complexity from its 15 years sur lattes, offering up aromas of honeyed citrus fruit that mingle with nuances of smoke, iodine and brown butter. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and impressively vinous, with a textural attack, good depth at the core and a pinpoint mousse, concluding with a sapid, saline finish. It should drink well for another decade.”
