The Story

Although conceived in 2000, MCIII wasn’t bottled until 2004 and the first batch has consequently undergone ten years of lees ageing. Moët spent a total of 15 years trialling this new champagne before release and their persistence has been rewarded: this ultra-premium cuvée now provides the cornerstone to the luxury house’s range. In 2016, their efforts were duly acknowledged at the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships with a Gold Medal and the especial Chairman’s Trophy.

So in summary: a blend all three grape varieties and six different vintages (although 1998 appears twice; once as a vins clairs and then again as a re-blended finished champagne), utilising three different ageing vessels: stainless-steel tanks, oak vats and normal bottles. Simple, really.

        Each and every bottle has a hand-etched label

Further, to add another layer of cryptography, each cuvée will carry a catchy code number referring to the production chronology and disgorgement date. The first batch is 001.14, with ‘001’ referencing the first cuvée and ‘.14’ the year of disgorgement – the next will be 002.17. And to top it off, this code – along with ‘MCIII’ and the brand name – is hand-etched onto every bottle. A conventional label just wouldn’t do this justice, would it.

Moët & Chandon MCIII | Batch: 001.14 | Disgorged: 2014 | Dosage: 7 g/L | Vintages: 2003, 2002, 2000, 1999, 1998, 1993
Lots of honey, walnut and patisserie aromas straight away. So buttery and so tropical, this has a real unexpected freshness. Despited the aged components it sits safely on the reductive side. Heaps of acidity but so many layers of fruit and dried fruits that linger forever. You can taste younger elements from 2002, this is definitive Moët. A masterpiece.
