Each Grand Vintage is unique and expresses the Moët & Chandon Cellar Master’s personal interpretation of the year.

The maturity of this 2013 champagne – the 75th Grand Vintage in the House’s history – is immediately apparent.

Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2013 is a champagne marked by a late harvest. It encapsulates a year of waiting, a year of anticipation.

The season shines through in its flavours and aromas, while its maturity is expressed through its autumnal notes, golden hue and persistent bubbles. 

BLEND

TASTING NOTES

 

A slightly golden color

A light golden hue with fine, persistent bubbles.

Autumnal bouquet

The maturity of this champagne is immediately apparent, with autumnal notes of roasted chestnuts, toasted buckwheat, rich nuts, honey and nougat. White fruit is revealed next, reminiscent of a beautifully ripe apple or pear. Aromas of iodine, dried flowers and pine sap complete the bouquet.

 

A LIVELY, WELL-DEFINED PALATE

The palate is direct and energetic, supported by a lively yet delicate acidity and a finely chiselled structure, and enveloped by a refined, grainy texture. The wine finishes with a pleasantly bitter hint of white grapefruit.
