2008 Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage, Brut


2008 Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage, Brut


Winemaker Notes

Bright pale yellow with glimmers of green. Fine, dynamic bead. Initial floral notes of linden, honeysuckle and acacia with citrus nuances evocative of bergamot and mandarin orange zest along with a dash of anise and green tomato. Following are notes of just-ripe stone fruits—white peach, nectarine and Mirabelle plums. The bouquet is completed by gentle scents of pastry, brioche, frangipane, almonds and vanilla with a slight hint of white pepper. This vintage is vivacious and lively. The underlying acidity orients the linear, focused palate; the tautness is enveloped and channeled by the texture of succulent notes of white fruits which envelop and channel the freshness toward a vibrant, mouth-watering finish with a lingering note of citrus fruit.

Blend: 40% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir, 23% Meunier

Critical Acclaim


James Suckling

A stamp of house-styled reduction and toastiness, with dried citrus fruits, pink grapefruit and grilled peaches. The palate is succulent and delivers attractive weight in a bold stance. The vintage has gifted its strong acid cut. Super-refreshing finish. A blend of 40% chardonnay, 37% pinot noir and 23% pinot meunier. Drink now.
