Champagne Moet & Chandon Overview
+
This incredibly rare trilogy from Mot & 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.

Mot & Chandon 1988: A somewhat difficult season for the region began with some early mild spring weather, allowing flowering to occur without any problems. The early summer months showed signs of promise but July and August were cloudy and wet. September arrived and with it came a last flurry of sunshine. Champagnes that have been given time to age have developed amazing complexity due to the exceptional acidity levels of the grapes at harvest.

Mot & Chandon 1998: 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.

Mot & Chandon 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 harvest. Grapes had great acidity and the ageing potential is astounding. The next big vintage!

According to Cellar Master Benot Gouez, Mot & Chandon Grand Vintage 1988 has similar linear characteristics to the recently released 2008 and still has an incredible freshness quality to it. Discover their similarities for yourself with this prestige and rare Mot & 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).

“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)”
