Brut Impérial is Moët et Chandon's benchmark Champagne, created from more than 100 different wines, of which 20% to 30% are reserve wines (held back from older vintages) specially selected to enhance their mature character, complexity and consistency. Chef de Cave (head winemaker) Benoît Gouez is a master of the art of blending and year on year ensures Brut Impérial is a standard bearer for the distinctive Moët et Chandon character. The wine is a blend of the classic Champagne grapes Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The fresh crisp palate reveals flavours of citrus and white fleshed fruits (apple, pear, white peach) alongside floral notes and elegant hints of brioche and fresh nuts. Serve in tall flutes, on its own or with canapés.
