Moët & Chandon

Grand Vintage
2006

Floral - Expansive - Succulent

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 2006 is the perfect embodiment of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit, a spirit founded on three essential values:

- 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 pale yellow colour with green reflections 

A refined, pure, precise bouquet:

  • Initial notes of just ripened fruits 
  • peach, mango and banana 
  • are rounded out with mature notes of white pepper, flint and marzipan 
  • As the wine breathes, the bouquet is refreshed with floral and delicately botanical notes of honeysuckle, bergamot and anis 

An expansive, succulent palate:

  • A preliminary crispness
  • notes of nectarine and currant 
  • gives way to a succulent, creamy richness, with the impression of expansive flavour asserting itself and lingering on a bittersweet, deliciously appetizing note of pomelo
