Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2004

Cuvee: Rosé
Vintage: 2004
Grand Vintage Rosé 2004 embodies the three essential values of the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé spirit: freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines and respect for the individuality of each vintage for finely aged champagnes of finesse, depth and sophistication. Notes of blackcurrant and blackberry. Slightly tannic with a subtle tanginess. Plentiful, in excellent health and beautifully ripe were the key characteristics of the 2004 harvest. Throughout the entire growing season the weather was unusually mild and particularly favourable to thriving vines and exquisitely mature grapes. After a somewhat dry spring the vines flourished in the early summer rains and subsequent hot sunny weather. Very warm temperatures later in the season created the ideal conditions for a harvest which was both extremely abundant and at the perfect stage of ripeness
