Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier French Champagnes, Epernay France
Years of patience and careful nurture by the Moët Chandon team goes into the crafting of Nectar Imperial, a Grande Champagne that's conspicuous for its enthusiasm to satiate and titillate all five senses. The assemblage of fruit is built around the sound structure of Pinot Noir, this exceptional wine is made using only those grapes that display truly outstanding characters, a very special, medium dry, medium sweet, Demi-Sec Champagne, brimming with exciting flavour richness, textural opulence and toothsome sensuality.
All great wines are a product of the perfect union between climate and soil. In Champagne however, the human element is more vital than any other winegrowing region. The people of Champagne have fashioned the soil and vines into the world's most specialized vineyards. Moët & Chandon's cellars are carved out of a great legacy of chalk topography that's unique to Champagne. The galleries, some of which date from as early as the company's foundation in 1743, stretch over 28 kilometres and are cut into several levels under the town of Epernay. Long roads, wide intersections, endless staircases and pavements on which millions of bottles are carefully stacked, these cellars are a subterranean city of wine.
