Moët & Chandon is thrilled to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Moët Impérial, an important milestone in the extraordinary journey of a global icon of celebration. Formerly called White Star, the Imperial is made of 35%-40% Pinot Noir, 45%-50% Pinot Meunier and 10%-20% Chardonnay which gives freshness. Its aromas reveal apples, pears, yellow peaches, honey, floral nuances such as lime blossom a elegant notes of brioche and fresh nuts. The palate is seductive and fruity, with smooth, full flavors.

Bright and balanced, featuring a fine, lively bead, mouthwatering acidity and a lightly toasty profile of poached pear and black currant flavors, with rich hints of lemon curd and pastry cream.

(roughly 50% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay; 9 g/l dosage; LAIBG): Light, bright yellow. Musky pear and toasty lees on the nose and in the mouth. Fleshy and open-knit, with a hint of bitter lemon pith adding back-end cut. Finishes on a gently smoky note, with very good cling and focus and a hint of bitter quinine. This must be the best example of this bottling that I've had in years, if not decades. In the past the Imperial Brut received a dosage of 12 g/l, but no more; in fact, there's talk that in the near future it may be dropped down as far as 7 g/l.
