Each Grand Vintage Rosé is unique and expresses the Moët & Chandon Cellar Master’s personal interpretation of the year. The Grand Vintage Rosé 2013 has a truly unique character and is the 44th vintage rosé in the House’s history.

Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2013 is a champagne marked by a late harvest. It encapsulates a year of waiting, a year of anticipation. The season shines through in its flavours and aromas, offering a generous nose, spicy fruitiness and a chiselled mouthfeel expressed through autumnal notes.

BLEND

Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 Rosé is thus an unexpectedly complementary expression of a year that is widely known for its Chardonnays. It is 35% Chardonnay – a rather high proportion for a rosé, which typically contains more Pinot Noir. After 7 years in the cellars, it reveals a truly unique character.

TASTING NOTES

Colour tinged with orange

A radiant, light pink hue with hints of orange.

Generous bouquet

The initial aromas are sweet, tinged with a mixture of wild strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate seeds. It then develops a touch of freshness with hints of blood orange and star fruit. Black pepper, dark chocolate, cinnamon, dried flowers and new leather round off the bouquet.

A SPICY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE

The fleshy attack on the palate confirms the wine’s voluptuous character. The chiselled structure of the Pinot Noir is accompanied by the sensation of crisp stone fruit, such as plums and cherries. The texture is finely powdered and a delicate astringency underscores the long finish, with flashes of pink grapefruit and lime zest.
