Moet and Chandon 2012 Grand Vintage Brut Champagne 750ml
Bright, pale yellow, with green reflections and a fine, persistent bead. The nose hints of fresh white flowers, which develop into aromas of sweet pastry, walnuts and hazelnuts, then ripe pear, white peach and nectarine. A supple and soft-textured champagne, its initial sweetness gives way to a more structured acidity. A persistent finish reveals a hint of iodine underscored by a zesty note of pink grapefruit.
Pairs well with yellowtail carpaccio, langoustine, Norwegian king crab with avocado, veal with roasted brussels sprouts and meringue shells with grapefruit sorbet.
Blend: 41% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 26% Meunier
