Wine To Go Buy This Week – Valentine’s Edition - Moët & Chandon Rosé Imperial – 90 Points

As one of the largest landholders in Champagne and one of the oldest Champagne Houses dating from 1743, Moët & Chandon consistently turns out quality Champagne. Their Imperial Rosé is deep salmon, almost amber in color giving off fresh strawberry, lime, raspberry, and black cherry with back notes of plum, rose petal, a slight hint of pepper, resin and menthol. This is a clean and pure expression of Champagne, refreshing without being overpowering, with the girth of Pinot Noir as its base, followed by Pinot Meunier and 10 to 20% Chardonnay, allowing for a broader range of food pairings. There is a noticeable acidity and a medium carbonation with just the slightest hint of sweetness at nine grams per liter of dosage. Just in time for Valentine’s Day it comes in a decorative pink Emoji Gift Box with peel and stick emoji stickers to decorate your bottle.
