Moët & Chandon
Moet & Chandon's Champagne brand and family were active in Champagne since the 15th century, although the Champagne House Moët et Chandon was not founded until 1743 by Claude Moët. Today it owns 1,150 hectares (2,800 acres) of vineyards, and annually produces approximately 28,000,000 bottles of champagne. Of those 1,150 hectares of rich chalk soil, 50% are grands crus and 25% are premiers crus.
"Notes of guava and spicy green grapefruit zest combine with stone fruit: white peach and nectarine. The wine opens up, with the whole complemented by woody vanilla and warm, lightly toasted brioche. The fruit is majestic: ripe, fleshy and profound. Beyond the richness and a certain voluptuousness is a strong impression of consistency that prevails. The wine’s power is remarkably restrained. The various sensations – silky, salty, sappy, bitter and briny – converge and persist". (www.Domperignon.com)
Our favourite is with smoked salmon blini's or oysters, but also try it with cold poached fish such as salmon, or asian cuisine.
