Wine Spectator: "The minerally undertow imparts a subtle, smoky note that blends with flavors of dried pineapple, biscuit, salted almond and white peach. A balanced version, with a fine bead and well-honed acidity. Drink now through 2018." Dec 2012
Winery: "An elegant colour: golden straw yellow with green highlights. A sparkling bouquet: the vibrant intensity of green apple and citrus fruit, the freshness of mineral nuances and white flowers, and the elegance of blond notes (brioche, cereal, fresh nuts). A generous palate combining sumptuousness and subtlety: the delicious sumptuousness of white-fleshed fruits (pear, peach, apple), the alluring caress of fine bubbles, and the soft vivacity of citrus fruit with nuances of gooseberry.
Moet Imperial can be served throughout the meal, from aperitif to dessert and pairs perfectly with sushi, scallops, oysters, white fish, white meats (such as roasted free range chicken au jus with fines herbes), and white fruits (such as a white peach tart served with a light, white chocolate cream)."
