(Formerly known as "White Star")
The flagship of Moët & Chandon, Moët Impérial, is the most accomplished and universal expression of the house style. It reflects both the diversity and similarities of the three champagne grapes and the richness of the region’s best vineyards to reveal the magic of the world’s most loved champagne. Lively and generous, Moët Impérial distinguishes itself by a bright fruitiness, a seductive palate and an elegant maturity, that continually seduces and delights the palate.
★ Moët Impérial is an extremely accomplished assemblage of over 120 crus, in which the Pinots predominate for intensity and structure (35% to 40% Pinot Noir, 45% to 50% Pinot Meunier) with a hint (10%) of Chardonnay for freshness.
★ The synergy between fruit and yeast is revealed through maturation. The ageing process is almost twice as long as the legal requirement.
★ The use of 30% of carefully selected reserve wines complete the assemblage and enhance its harmony, complexity and consistency.
★ The bouquet is radiant and reveals notes of apple, pear and yellow peach.
★ The palate is richly flavorful and smooth, followed by a delicate fresh crispness.
★ Moët Impérial can be served as a prelude to dinner and all the way through to dessert. It is perfect with sushi and dumplings, shellfish and fish in light sauces, poached, roasted, or lightly sauced white meats, and fresh fruit salads that are not too sweet.
