Aged to Perfection

By Chris Boyle

Grand Vintage 2004 Brut and Rosé / Moët & Chandon

The venerable champagne house of Moët & Chandon is a cornerstone of global luxury giant Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy and is best known for its famous prestige cuvée, Dom Pérignon.

But for even longer—270 years—Moët has made world-class vintage champagnes under its own distinguished label.

After seven years of careful aging in its historic cellars in Epernay, France, Moët just released two standout champagnes, its Grand Vintage 2004 line-up, only the 70th vintage produced since the winery’s founding in 1743.

The Grand Vintage 2004 Brut ($58) and Grand Vintage 2004 Rosé ($65) are made entirely from the very best grapes the extensive Moët & Chandon vineyards produced in 2004.

The former immediately garnered an impressive 94 points from Wine Enthusiast and is a creamy, elegant, and complex creation, filled with floral and fruit notes of peach, lemon, pineapple, green banana, and pear.

The medium-bodied rosé is made from nearly half pinot noir grapes, and has a delicate copper rose color, with more of a berry and spice taste, making it a fantastic food wine that pairs well with everything from duck to caviar to chocolate.
