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 twenty-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 1992, Grand Vintage 2002 and Grand Vintage 2012, all beautifully presented in a branded black wooden case.

Moët & Chandon 1992: The 1992 season experienced a very long and extremely hot summer with isolated hail storms. However, the grapes had superb levels of ripeness and a high total acidity level and champagnes from this vintage have very good ageing potential.
"Medium gold. Aromas of quince entwine with crème brulée and cappuccino. Its rich, creamy palate reveals a mature harmony, with a fresh and vivid finish."

Moët & Chandon 2002: The 2002 vintage shaped up ideally over the spring, with no significant frost and near-perfect flowering. Then followed a summer marked by long, sunny periods interspersed with regular cloudy and rainy spells. The vines were in good health and the dehydration of the grape berries helped them reach new heights of ripeness.
"Deep gold. Complex, mature aromas with candied fruits and mocha hints. A suave, imposing palate brings almond brittle and caramel apple, with liquorice and pepper at the finish."

Moët & Chandon 2012: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.
"Bright pale yellow. Fresh, floral aromas mingle with notes of sweet pastry, nuts and peach. Soft textures lead to sweet tastes and a persistent, tangy finish."

Expert Reviews
90/100
Antonio Galloni
“Moet’s 1992 Grand Vintage is a very pretty wine for readers who enjoy Champagnes with a bit more of the natural evolution that develops in bottle. Baked apple tart, brioche, smoke, apricot, honey and lemon confit are all laced together. The 1992 possesses terrific energy and verve, even if it comes across as a bit compact for a wine of its age. The blend is 45% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 15% Meunier. Disgorged: February, 2004.”

“Generous toasty and fragrant nose full of coffee, gunpowder and opulent fruit. Simply delicious. Fresh, lively, light yet intense at the same time. A polished and perfected wine. In a very fine drinking form now, but with a long life ahead of it. Superb. ”

“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. ”
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“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.”
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.”
