db recommends: Moët Grand Vintage 2006

Moet-Grand-VintageHaving made the controversial decision to go against the grain and not release a 2005 vintage, LVMH-owned Champagne house Moët & Chandon has released its 2006 Grand Vintage, described by cellar master Benoît Gouez as “floral, expansive and succulent”. The release will be the first vintage from the house to boast the disgorgement date on the back label. A year of contrasts, 2006 saw the Champagne region suffer spring frosts and summer hail, followed by a July heat wave and a rainy August. The vintage was saved by a hot, dry September that led to sizeable yields and wines with acidity levels similar to the acclaimed 2002 vintage.
A blend of 42% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 19% Pinot Meunier with a dosage of 5g/l, Gouez believes while Chardonnay excelled in 2006, the Pinot Meunier in the blend offers “the perfect balance” to the ripeness of the Chardonnay.
