Moët & Chandon Brut Imperial NV 6L Methuselah
Founded in 1743, Moët & Chandon is the Maison that introduced champagne to the world by offering a range of unique wines for every occasion. Vibrant, generous and alluring. Moët Impérial is the House's iconic champagne. Created in 1869, it embodies the unique Moët & Chandon style. A style that distinguishes itself by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. Its assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grapes varieties: 30-40% pinot noir, 30-40% meunier and 20-30% chardonnay grapes – harvested from the most extensive estate in the region – providing the champagne with body, suppleness and finesse. More than 100 wines are used in the blend to enhance maturity and complexity while maintaining the distinguished Moët style.
Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut is golden straw in colour, with aromas of green apple and citrus fruit, mineral nuances and white flowers and elegant notes of brioche, cereals and fresh nuts. The palate combines the delicious generosity of white fruits (pear, peach, apple) with the soft vivacity of citrus fruit and gooseberry nuances and fine bubbles. Moët Impérial can be served throughout the meal, from aperitif to dessert and pairs perfectly with white meat, scallops, white fish, oysters and other shellfish as well as white fruit desserts.

Penfolds pinots always seem to have an air of having been assembled by an expert in shiraz and cabernet. In 2012, this translates into a tightly wound palate scaffolded with firm, fine tannins. The aim here is a pinot for the long-term, which Gago admits is more robust than some. It's a savoury style of beetroot allusions, with a fragrant lift of rose hip, notes of jubes and red berry compote. A taut acid line and finely structure profile make this a firmer Bin 23, with a confident decade before it.
