Champagne Moet & Chandon Overview
+
Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Cellar Master's interpretation of the singular year that is produced. The Met & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit is founded on three essential values: Freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines and individuality of the vintage.

Weather:
The 1998 vintage shows all the hallmarks of a truly outstanding year. The features of the vintage were a high natural sugar content in the grapes and an excellent level of acidity, indicating an exceptional overall balance and long ageing potential.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: Predominantly Grand & Premier Crus
Grape Varieties: 40% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier
Disgorged: April-June 2013

Tasting Note: A warm harvest produced wines with very high acidity. The season began began with mild weather and sunny spells. The summer months were superb with average temperatures for August the highest since 1962. Generally revered as one of the best vintages from the 1990s, champagnes from 1998 are tasting sublime today.
