About Moet et Chandon

87 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - December 2009

($40; LAEZU) Yellow-gold with a faint peach skin tinge. Peach, nectarine and spun sugar on the nose. Lush, creamy flavors of sweet pit fruits and melon are deepened by notes of honey and nougat. A touch of orange peel lifts this sappy, off-dry wine, which finishes on a slightly syrupy note. This is easier to drink and less cloying than many examples of sweet Champagne.

A decent champagne for the money. It is missing some of the toasty qualities of others in the region, yet there is no cloying sweetness. Nice range of thick brulee like texture and bubbly mouth feel. Instead of cava, pair with a salty, sheep's milk cheese like Roncal from Spain.
Fantastic

Medium bubbles, fruity overtones, wonderful mouth feel, light on bouquet. One of my two favorite champagnes!
Great taste, less shilling.

I enjoyed this bubbly at the Old House, located in the Eldorado Hotel in Santa Fe. The bartender suggested it and I fell in love! A fantastic bubby at a fair price. I suggest pairing it with award-winning chef, Martin Rios' warm molten chocolate cake!
Best Moet

This is by far the best Champagne Moet produces. It is by far my favorite. White Star lacks something, and the Brut is only good in Mimosas.

This was the most memorable champagne we tasted last month during the Charlotte Wine & Food Weekend Festival. It was one of six we sampled from Moet et Chandon. Light, apricots, and citrus flavors. Slightly sweet with a smooth finish.

Very exciting to drink. I bought a bottle of this two weekends in a row to celebrate finding it. Tastes best while very cold. slightly alcoholic finish once you get to the bottom of a bottle that has foamed over while opening.
Sweet for your sweets

This is The one. I love it with Lobster, broiled not steamed. I also love it with desserts. The sweetness of the chapange goes well with the sweetnees of the dessert, but it's not an over kill. Just sit down and try it. You too will love it!
great sweetness and balance but not too sweet

very nice balanced flavor that is so much better than the moet white star, slightly sweet and great to keep for a special dinner. I had it with BBQ chicken and it complemented well.

About Champagne

Champagne-making is the highly refined art of blending base wines into a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. These component wines come from different grape varieties (the white grape Chardonnay and the red varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier) and from different villages and vineyards. And because only four or five harvests per decade...
