Champagne Mot & Chandon Overview
1988: The harvest was not entirely easy for Champagne, however beginning with some early mild spring weather allowed flowering to occur without any problems. The early summer months showed signs of promise but July and August were cloudy. September arrived and with it came a last floury of sun but with this came rain too. Champagnes that have been given time to aged have flourished due to the preferable acidity levels.

1998: Wines with high acidity, the weather began with mild weather and sunny spells. The summer months were superb with August average temperatures the highest since 1962. Revered as one of the best vintages from the 90s.

2008: Earmarked as having the potential to compete with 2002 on quality and ageing potential. The weather conditions began with relative mild and humid spells, but sunshine through the late spring with cool evenings leading into the summer months created ideal conditions before the picking. The grapes have great acidity and ageing qualities.

According to Chef de Cave Benot Gouez, the Mot & Chandon Grand Vintage 1988 has similar linear characteristics to the recently released 2008 and still has a freshness quality to it.

The Mot & Chandon Grand Vintage Trilogy consists of a wooden box presentation featuring the New Grand Vintage 2008 together with the Grand Vintage Collection 1998 and Grand Vintage 1988.

“2008: Beautifully ageing citrussy nose with layers and layers of delicious toasty nuances. There is intrinsic finesse and cool fruitiness to the creamy textured palate. Lovely purity and precision but still with lots to come. An outstanding, new wave Grand Vintage to cellar.”

“2008: 40% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir, 23% Pinot Meunier from this famed vintage. Pretty steady tiny bead. Mildly toasty nose - some evolution evident. It is eight years old after all. Rather opulent nose follows through to a relatively rich palate and dense impact. Something just a little bit heavy handed about the tannins here. But it's refreshing enough. Though less so that the 2008 ros.”

“1998: Lovely, bright, toast-laden nose with mild vegetal and sulphitic complexity in a positive way. Gunpowder comes through on the palate, too. Brisk, creamy, caressing palate with long, linear length. Very calm and seems rather mature already.”

“1998: Disgorged February 2013. 50% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay, 5% Pinot Meunier. Really toasty and mushroomy. Entrancing scent. Dried fruits and loads of wheaty biscuit character. Fades rather quickly, but the flavours are delicious, and they show lovely maturity. (RH)”
