Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial NV 1.5L Mag GB
The Moet and Chandon Brut Imperial, 1.5 litre Magnum, is the big brother to the standard bottle and much bigger brother to the cheeky, fun-loving 200ml piccolo. Whatever size it comes in, Brut Imperial is the signature wine of this famous Champagne house, and the longer maturation of the magnum ensure even greater quality and complexity. As impressive in the glass, as the Magnum is on the eye, serve this wine to show you appreciate the best.
The vibrant bouquet is bursting with green apples and citrus with fresh white flowers, nuts and brioche. On the palate you'll enjoy more apples with pears and peaches with citrus and gooseberries with deliciously fine bubbles.

Lemon curd and glazed apricot notes mix with hints of biscuit, black raspberry and smoky mineral in this lightly creamy version.

A nice edge of reductive complexity on the nose here, some grapefruit, pears, apples and fine toasty nuances. They've got this market-leading NV in terrific shape at the moment, really fresh. The palate delivers simple apple flavour and has a sweet gloss across the finish.

The Brut Imperial is Moët & Chandon’s flagship wine. A blend of Pinot Noir (45% to 50%), Pinot Meunier (35%-40%) and Chardonnay 10%-15%), it exhibits fresh orchard fruit and toasted aromas on the nose with a lively rich mousse in the glass. It has rich, yeast flavors on the palate with good texture, volume and balance. At 13 g/l RS, it’s made a bit sweeter for the American palate.
