Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008 Brut Champagne

Description

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

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. James Suckling 93 Points

Just beginning to mature, this balanced, ripe wine is complex, with bright acidity, toast and pear and green-plum fruits. It is rich, with a tight mouse that shows intensity as well as a stylish character. This is a fine wine just coming into its own but well worth aging further until 2020. Wine Enthusiast 95, Cellar Selection
