Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2015 is marked by a year of tension. The Champagne evokes an awakening, the first rays of a day full of promise. The 76th vintage in the history of the House, Grand Vintage 2015 is distinctive for its brilliance, tender bouquet and enveloping palate.
2015 was a harvest of exceptional red-skinned grapes. They showed remarkable maturity with a powerful, fruity nose and full-bodied finish.
Dry, ripe and healthy years suit the Pinot Noir, which is a major component of this blend.
Ageing period in cellars: 6 years
Ageing after disgorging: at least 6 months
Dosage: 5g/liter (extra brut)
A tender and vegetal bouquet.
The nose first expresses itself with restraint, subtly hinting a soft and fresh white-green universe. Initial notes of breadcrumbs, fresh brioche and almond paste give way to elderflower and jasmine, then to fruit such as white peach and watermelon. Notes of garrigue at dawn complete the ensemble.
A frank and enveloping palate.
The attack on the mouth is direct and confident. The structure is generous, ample and supple, reminiscent of the cotton flower. The enveloping and caressing texture is accompanied by floral, aniseed and mentholated nuances which bring lightness and freshness for such a solar vintage. The finish lingers on a slightly sappy note, with a delicate bitterness evoking fresh almonds.
