Moët & Chandon Nectar Impérial NV

Champagne, FranceNectar Impérial is a demi-sec champagne with a dosage of 45 g/L, led by pinot noir (40-50 percent), pinot meunier (30-40 percent), and 10-20 percent chardonnay. It also has a significant portion of reserve wine. The nose is not dissimilar to the Imperial Brut, though the intensity is a notch lower and there’s less overall autolytic character. Medium-dry in style, as you’d expect for this category, there’s a confected quality to the palate that is almost Prosecco-like. It may not be exceptional value, but the style is worth exploring and lends itself to a range of food pairing options. I suggest trying fruit-based desserts that have a subtle sweetness, or a cheese plate.Tasted: 05 November 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 75.99 BCLS AB 75.00 private wine shops MB 76.75 private wine shops ON 76.00 LCBO QC 75.00 SAQ Producer: Moet & ChandonDistributors: Charton-Hobbs
