Notes from the Winemaker:

Rose Imperial is a spontaneous, radiant, romantic expression of the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity.

The assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varietals:
The intensity of Pinot Noir: 40 to 50% of which 10% red wine
The fleshiness of Pinot Meunier: 30 to 40% of which 10% red wine
The freshness of Chardonnay: 10 to 20% of which 20 to 30% from specially selected reserve wines to enhance its intensity, subtlety and constancy.

Tasting Notes:
A glowing colour: pink with amber highlights
A bewitching bouquet: a lively, intense bouquet of red fruits (wild strawberry, raspberry, cherry), floral nuances of rose a slight hint of pepper
An expressive palate combining intensity and suppleness: the juicy, persistent intensity of berries (strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant), the fleshiness and firmness of peach, the freshness of a subtle note of menthol


Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Mouthwatering acidity drives this sleek rosé Champagne, with juicy star fruit and raspberry flavors riding the lively mousse, accented by hints of pastry, orange peel, smoke and dried herb. Drink now." -AN (Nov 30, 2018)

90 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"(roughly 45% Pinot Noir, 35% Pinot Meunier and 20% Chardonnay, with 9 g/l dosage; LAH9V): Dark, vivid pink. Ripe red berries, rose oil and tangerine on the nose, plus a subtle note of toasty lees. Bitter cherry and berry skin flavors give way to softer raspberry in the middle, with a tangy blood orange nuance adding cut and lift. Packs a punch but shows very good clarity and delineation, finishing round, smooth and quite long." -Josh Raynolds (Jan 2015)

Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"The rosé rendition of one of the best-selling Champagnes has been reformulated for the U.S. market. It is now on the dry side, pushing forward its delicious red fruit. Bright acidity gives the palate a lift, while there is some good weight on the finish." -Roger Voss (12/1/2012)
