Moet & Chandon Imperial Rosé, Moët & Chandon N.V.
Hints of ripe peach, passion fruit and juicy acidity are carried on a tightly knit, satiny mousse in this firm rosé, layered with spiced plum, dried cherry, smoke and star anise notes. Try this with charcuterie. Drink now through 2018.

Very light color with a light yellow and bronze hue. Intense apple, dried-lemon-peel and pear-puree aromas and flavors. Medium body, tight and linear palate and tangy acidity. More like a white Champagne yet enjoyable and vivid. Drink now.

Riper red fruit than the Ruinart, but nothing remarkable. Decent standard rosé.

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.
