Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the cellar master’s personal, free interpretation in service of the singular qualities of that year’s grapes. Grand Vintage Rosé is the perfect embodiment of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit, a sprit founded on three essential values:
Each bottle of Möet & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé Brut is unique and original. This champagne has been crafted from the most rigorously selected grapes of one single harvest. The coupage of this Grand Vintage Rosé champagne consists of 45% Pinot Noir (22% of which from a red wine reserve), 31% Chardonnay, and 24% Pinot Meunier. The second fermentation process and ageing of this champagne was realized in the dark underground cellers of Moët et Chandon over a time-period of 48 months in this champagne´s bottle. During the degüelle (disgorgement) process, there was eight grams of sugar added per liter.
2012 was deemed one of the best vintages the Champagne region has ever experienced. “The quality and the intensity are definitely there to make an outstanding vintage,” Dom Perignon chef de cave Richard Geoffroy told Decanter. The base wines show a lovely richness as well as the acidity needed to make outstanding and long-lived Champagnes. Yields are very low, in some places half of the allowed production.
