Moet & Chandon / Nectar Imperial Rose / 750mL
Nectar Imperial Rose is an intense and voluptuous expression of the Moet & Chandon style, with aromas of red and black currants made even richer by notes of caramel, nutmeg and wild strawberry.
Color: Bright pink; with intense coppery highlights.
Bouquet: Intense fruitiness of ripe berries like wild strawberry, redcurrant and blackcurrant are heightened by powerful notes of ripe peach and a delectable nuance of strawberry jam.
Palate: Richness and freshness balance together, with the persistent intensity of ripe berries warmed by sensual nutmeg and caramel, finishing with a fresh hit of redcurrant.
Moet champagnes are found on every continent in the world. The house claims one of the longest and earliest beginnings in Champagne tracing its origins to 1743. The events in history this house has witnessed and participated in are without a doubt unequalled in the world of fine wine. This bottle is on the sweet side of the equation - sporting strawberries and cream, with a whiff of delicate floral notes to match. Best enjoyed with rich fatty foods or dessert, this too has a healthy dollop of viscous red Pinot Noir in the mix that includes Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier as well.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 92 points - Aromas are rich and slightly toasted, reminiscent of freshly baked rolls. Bright flavors of cherries and rhubarb fill the mouth with a deep yeasty finish. Bubbles are small and compact, producing a smooth mousse and overall soft mouthfeel. Delicious. June/2013
