    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Grand Vintage 2003, the 68th from the Maison, is a powerful wine: its velvety maturity is immediately apparent, forceful in its creamy blondness. The first notes of vanilla, almond and hazelnut are followed by nuances of colourful sun-soaked Summer fruits – apricots, yellow peaches, nectarines, poached pears. Gradually this generous fruitiness is joined by a soft spiciness of cinnamon, gingerbread and freshly-ground coffee.

    Deep and structured, the Grand Vintage 2003 is fleshly, ample and smooth. This unctuous sensuality – reminiscent of leather and cashmere – segues into a warm finale of slightly acid licorice and candied grapefruit. From an extraordinary year and an incomparable fruit, Moët & Chandon has created a profound champagne, one that announces its colours without artifice, intrigues by its honesty. A wine that, having weathered all challenges, has come through with a robust serenity, a formal generosity and a comfortable presence.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Moët's vintage, from the hot, low-yielding 2003 vintage, has an unusually high percentage of Pinot Meunier (43%), suggesting there is a distinct character to the year. It's certainly powerful and intense, soft initially, hinting at toast and yeast, the fruit almost sweet, even though the wine is a brut style. It is the rich strawberry flavor that's most surprising on a wine that really has integrated impressively.

    A rich, opulent style, offering peach, apricot and ginger flavors. Full-bodied and muscular, yet with a firm structure keeping it all focused and a nice tangy finish. Drink now through 2018.

    Wine Spectator

    A classical style, this could be a yardstick for measuring other Champagnes. It's rich in the middle, clean in the end, with plenty of tension to hold the wine tight. More mineral than fruity, this has the meadow flower aspect of fresh butter and cream. Delicious with pan-roasted sole.
