Moet Launches “Moet Ice Imperial”


Moet & Chandon has just launched a Champagne designed to be served over ice.

Moet Ice Imperial is a new assemblage made of 50% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Meunier and 10% Chardonnay. The Champagne is demi-sec and it has had successful trials in the USA, France and Germany.

Chef de Cave Benoit Gouez describes Moet Ice Imperial: “An aromatic intensity strikes immediately with tropical fruit aromas and hints of soft spices and aromatic plants such as blackcurrant and peppermint. The attack in the mouth is ample and fleshy, with a rich explosion of fruit and sweet aromas such as toffee or quince jelly. Then the acidity emerges for a refreshing finish with notes of grapefruit and ginger. The rich structure offers a hint of sweetness, and stands up against dilution while catering to all palates.”
