Grand Vintage
Rosé 2008

Delicate - Forthright - Precise

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 2008 is the perfect embodiment of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit, a sprit founded on three essential values:

  • Freedom of interpretation
  • Selection of the year’s most remarkable wines
  • Respect for individuality of each vintage

for finely aged champagnes which stand out for their maturity, complexity and charisma.
