Moët & Chandon

Grand Vintage
2002

mature - harmonious - precise

Every Grand Vintage is a reinvention, an affirmation of know-how, a free and personal interpretation by the Chef de Cave to reveal each vintage's unique character.
Grand Vintage 2002 perfectly embodies the spirit of Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage champagnes. That spirit is based on three essential values :

  • freedom of interpretation
  • selection of the year's most remarkable wines
  • individuality of the vintage

 to achieve champagnes that stand out for their maturity, complexity and presence.

Tasting notes

A sublime colour

A complex and mature bouquet

  • followed by notes  of juicy ripe fruits—pear, candied citrus and stonefruits (mirabelle plum, nectarine, white peach)     

A harmonious palate with a precise structure

  • the roundness and velvety texture of very ripe fruits
