The unique Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2008 is the perfect representation of the Moët & Chandon Champagne House spirit. The 46% Pinot Noir (including 20% still Pinot Noir), 32% Chardonnay, and 22% Meunier shows distinctive maturity and complexity.

The deep, shiny pink hue, with intricate blue and golden tones, and really fine bubbles introduces delicate rose and hawthorn notes, countered with boxwood, lemon peel, and a touch of anise. Fresh fruits follow: raspberry, cherry, blood-orange, along with smoky, spicy, iodized components. This 2008 Grand Vintage Rosé offers a fleshy and lush attack with hints of riper fruits such as strawberry or cassis. The palate stretches on a delicately chiselled structure and a nerve of acidity. Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2008 finish is robust with persistent citrus notes such as grapefruit.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Moët & Chandon's intensely colored 2008 Grand Vintage Rosé is dominated by Pinot Noir (50% or more along with roughly 30% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier) and contains 20% of red wine. It is released earlier than the white counterpart, which is scheduled for the second half of 2016 due to its strong acidity, which chef de cave Benoît Gouez finds a bit too prominent, though not as crazy as the 1996 acidity. The color of the 2008 GV Rosé is that of a candied cherry and indicates a nice maturity. Fresh, red fruit aromas on the nose lead to a dry and complex palate cleanser with discreet vegetal aromas. This is a pure, yet still young cuvée that finishes with a stimulating grip.
