Moët & Chandon Rosé Imperial NV

Champagne, FranceBright fruitiness is the Moët goal, and they have it in this 40/50 percent pinot noir (with 10 percent red wine); 30/40 pinot meunier and 10/20 percent chardonnay that contains 20/30 selected reserve wines. The colour is peachy orange, the attack soft and round with 9 g/l dosage. Three years on lees provides creamy, toasty structure that easily holds the explosive raspberry, cherry, cranberry with a citrus undercurrent. It's the freshness and acidity that seals the deal, along with flecks of brown spice. Clearly built for food you could start with grilled salmon but don’t be afraid to serve this with grilled lamb or pork.Tasted: 05 November 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 77.99 BCLS QC 89.25 SAQ MB 87.88 Banville & Jones Wine Co.
