Moet & Chandon Rose Imperial NV (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
92 JS / 91 WS / 91 VM
92 Points James Suckling: The toasty signature of the house fuses nicely with bright red fruits on the nose. The palate delivers an eerily accurate strawberry fruit flavor, with tartness, too. Extremely attractive style. Drink now.
91 Points The Wine Spectator: Traditional but exciting style of dry rosé, designed for dinner. Has a copper color, toasty aromas, firm texture and subtle fruit and spice flavors that linger on the finish.
91 Points Vinous Media: (roughly 45% pinot noir, 35% pinot meunier and 20% chardonnay): Bright orange-pink. Spicy cherry, red berries, blood orange and five-spice powder on the perfumed nose. Fleshy but dry, boasting excellent energy to its bitter cherry, redcurrant and floral pastille flavors. Finishes smooth and fleshy, with very good breadth and cling. The turnaround over the last few years at this house, now under the guidance of chef de cave Benoit Gouez, has been remarkable. -- Josh Raynolds
The Wine Advocate: Dressed in a pink salmon color, the non-vintaged Rosé Impérial Brut opens with a clear and fresh, delicately intense and slightly floral bouquet of small red berries, cherries and rose petals. Full-bodied, round, intense and fresh on the palate, this is a lovely aromatic and expressive Pinot Noir/Meunier blend with a kiss of elegant Chardonnay. In total, 20% of red Pinot wines give not just color, but also structure. This is very good and stimulating Rosé. - Stephan Reinhardt
