    A great vintage Champagne

    74th vintage of the house Moët & Chandon since the first, in 1842, Champagne Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012 offers the personal interpretation of the Cellar Master, Benoît Gouez on this delicate and fascinating year.

    Moët & Chandon's Champagne Grand Vintage is only made in great years. This wine of Champagne is the symbol of the spirit that presides over the creation of each Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage. It is the fruit of a personal interpretation of the year's composition and is the result of a rigorous selection of the year's wines, resulting in champagnes that stand out for their singularity, complexity and ageing potential.

    Qualified as "miracle champagne ", the year 2012 will be remembered in Champagne. After various climatic vagaries that put the vineyard to a severe test, the magnificent month of August came to announce a harvest beyond expectations with sweet grapes, good acidity and a good phenolic potential. These indicators left no doubt as to the omen of the birth of a very great year similar to the 1966, 1989 or 2002 vintages.

    For Benoît Gouez, this Champagne Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2012 "evokes the transition from spring to summer. It offers a certain sweetness, accompanied by freshness and serenity. "A very great vintage Champagne that testifies to the know-how and excellence of the Moët & Chandon house, handed down since 1743.

    Parker : 92 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Disgorged in February 2018 with five grams per liter dosage, Moët's 2012 Extra Brut Grand Vintage is showing well, unfurling in the glass with an expressive bouquet of ripe yellow orchard fruit, peaches, toasted nuts, warm bread and honeycomb. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and fleshy, with a tangy but ripe core of fruit, nicely integrated acids and a pinpoint mousse, concluding with an attractively fruit-driven finish. The 2012 reflects both the concentration of the vintage and Moët's push for riper fruit, and it is already quite accessible.
