This offers great balance between the freshest fruit and toasty maturity. That poise gives this impressive Champagne a tension, a high wire act that works superbly. It is rich, full of fruit but also with great depth. It will certainly age, so drink now or hold through 2019. (RV)
Moët's 2006 Grand Vintage Brut blends 42% Chardonnay with 39% Pinot Noir and 19% Meunier. This cuvée opens with ripe and pretty intense as well as elegant and remarkably pure Chardonnay aromas; additionally, there are floral and refreshing chalky lemon and herbal flavors, and subtle notes of brioche and bread. This Champagne is full-bodied, intense and powerful, yet really fine and refreshing on the palate; it has nutty flavors and a lot of tension and chalky flavors. This is a dry and firmly structured cuvée of great expression, finesse and elegance. Still very young. Date of disgorgement was May 2014. Dosage is five grams per liter. (SR)
A rich note of smoky mineral heralds this harmonious Champagne, while the vibrant, citrusy acidity and finely detailed bead support flavors of poached apricot, black currant, spun honey and candied kumquat. Offers a fine, creamy finish. Disgorged February 2014. Drink now through 2026. (AN)
This has a round, soft character that has some exotic, almost tropical-fruit aromas in the spectrum of green mango and pineapple. Peaches and citrus, too. The palate is super fleshy, velvety and soft. It really drives wide and even with some gentle, pithy grapefruit. Tends to bitterness on the finish.
Light yellow. Pungent aromas of poached pear, tangerine and toasty lees, with a stony nuance adding vivacity. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors and an emerging hint of smokiness. Finishes sappy and very long, with excellent clarity and a whiplash of chalky minerals. Disgorged in September, 2013. LAH5Z. (JR)
Moët's 2006 Brut Grand Vintage is beautiful, finessed and expressive. Smoke, slate, apricot and pastry notes emerge as the wine gradually unfolds. Rich and textured on the palate, yet beautifully supported by veins of minerality, the 2006 is simply impeccable from the very first taste. The richer, honeyed notes typical of Chardonnay in this vintage are particularly evident today while the Meunier, which has higher acidity, keeps things bright, although it plays a lesser part in the overall blend than in years past. The 2006 is 42% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 19% Pinot Meunier. Dosage is 5 grams/liter. (AG)
