Moët et Chandon, Brut Impérial NVRegular price €59.00
‘…a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.’
We can't claim that Moët and Chandon are small artisan producers—the annual production of the house is getting on for thirty million bottles—but there's no denying that the brand is one of the most well known and most requested when it comes to champagne.
The fresh, generous style of the wine and the classic presentation of the bottle make the Brut Impérial a trusted choice. Pale straw gold in the glass, with vivacious green apple and citrus energy in the fine bubbles, this blend of the three champagne grapes combines floral charm and mineral finesse, with a reliable and lively palate of fresh fruit, hazelnuts and just-baked bread.
And, by the by, for those who prefer their Moët with tea as well as dinner, here's an article from Lucire, ‘the global fashion magazine' via Wikipedia, which tells us
Moët is pronounced with a "t" at the end (IPA: [moɛt]) ('mo-et') as the French-born founder's surname is of Dutch origin.
