Moët & Chandon, Brut Imperial Rosé Épernay Non Vintage

Imperial Rose NV #3

Imperial Rose NV #2

Imperial Rose NV #4

45% Pinot Noir; 35% Pinot Meunier, 20% Chardonnay.  Unknown disgorgement date, recently purchased.

Crimson with copper hints.  Lusty, firm nose: slightly smoky berry and citrus fruit, brioche, tabac blond and truffle.  A sweet earthiness to the basket of meaty, red summer fruit, of medium body: Rainer cherry, forest strawberry and citrus.  Sharp, acidic mousse and a lemony acidity informs this Rosé with a brisk dryness.  A robust, flavorsome Rosé, if a bit obvious. A couple years in the cellar will always help a Moët along.  Now – 2016.
