Moët & Chandon’s new vintage champagne, the 2008 Grand Vintage Brut, now available.
This marks the House’s 72nd vintage wine since the first release in 1842, and represents Chief Winemaker Benoit Gouez’s personal interpretation of this vintage year.
Revealing the individuality of the vintage and crafted from a selection of the year’s most remarkable wines, the 2008 Grand Vintage Brut delights with its maturity, complexity and charisma after aging for seven years in Moët & Chandon’s historic cellars.
A springtime bouquet of floral notes of linden, honeysuckle and acacia, citrus nuances of bergamot and mandarin orange zest, and dash of anise and green tomato, give way to flavors of just-ripe stone fruit and scents of pastry and almonds with a slight hint of white pepper. A bright pale yellow with glimmers of green, its first impression on the palate is vivacious and lively, subsequently extending itself, with an invigorating finish and lingering note of citrus fruit.
Incredibly versatile and food friendly, Moët Grand Vintage 2008 is a surprising yet excellent way to elevate unexpected pairing dishes, such as truffled French fries, salted popcorn, fried chicken, and many more.
Now available nationwide for $64.99.
