Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne Review by Billy
Nose:Light orange lemon with delicate nutmeg and butterscotch
Palate:Delightfully even and spritzy bubbles that tease and play. Dry without being cottony.
Finish: Lingering citrus and nutmeg spice with floral hints.
Overall: Beautiful. As I have written before, the quality of Champagne bubbles is important to me. To big and they bombard. Too small and they prick. Uneven and they make the wine feel flat or unbalanced. This bottle had perfect bubbles, delicate flavors and a long finish that invites another sip...and another and another. I paid about $36 for this Champagne at a local wine store that tends to be a few dollars higher than others. A fair price for a splurge and a celebration. Find something to celebrate and raise a glass of Moet & Chandon Imperial Champagne!
