Moët & Chandon

Grand Vintage
2004

Graceful - Elegant - Sleek

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 2004 perfectly embodies the three essential values of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit:

freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines, respect for the individuality of each vintage for finely aged champagnes which stand out for their maturity, complexity and charisma.

Tasting notes

An elegant colour:

  • a brilliant light yellow
  • a fine, jewel-like bead

A refined, pure, precise bouquet:

  • fruity notes of white peach, lemon, pineapple, green banana and pear
  • floral, botanical scents of mock-orange, herbal tea and honeysuckle
  • spicier, sweeter nuances of pepper, brown sugar, marzipan and candied melon

A graceful palate with a light airy structure:

  • straightforward yet complex, with a sleek, pure savour leading into a long, languorously rich finish
  • a light, lively, supple structure with mineral overtones
  • bracing, refreshing notes of rhubarb and grapefruit with a touch of mint
