Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2006
Moet is over 250 years old and belongs to the exclusive group of luxury champagne creators, Louis Vuitton, Moet Hennessy and now Krug. It is by far the biggest selling Champagne in the world. Brut Impérial is a balanced assemblage of the three vine varieties disclosing a succession of elegant and harmonious sensations, a fresh maturity, supple and refined lines, inspiring well-being and an emotion which is appreciated and shared.
This offers great balance between the freshest fruit and toasty maturity. That poise gives this impressive Champagne a tension, a high wire act that works superbly. It is rich, full of fruit but also with great depth. It will certainly age, so drink now or hold through 2019. Rating: 95 Points; Wine Enthusiast
Medium yellow, bright colour. The bouquet is yeasty and complex, very classic Champagne. The flavour is voluminous filling the mouth and finishing cleanly dry, with some well-judged phenolics adding a clean, dry farewell. Lovely wine. Full of flavour and character. Rating: 94 Points; Huon Hooke
Moet’s champagnes are sometimes underrated, but this ’06 is excellent. Citrus, almond and patisserie aromas translate into a pristine palate. Rating: 94 Points; Ralph Kyte-Powell
Sleek acidity trims the sails of this otherwise rich and expansive Champagne, keeping it finely balanced and racy throughout. Flavors of roasted hazelnut, crushed blackberry, ripe apricot, honey and ginger biscuit glide on the silky palate to a saline-tinged finish. Drink now through 2029. Rating: 94 Points; Wine Spectator
