For Moët & Chandon, the unstoppable rise of rosé champagne has brought into the spotlight the glamorous chapters in the winemaking traditions of the House that have produced a range of versatile styles designed to please every palate.
Long ago in Champagne, even before the technique of effervescence was mastered, regional wines were made in varying shades of pink. Closer in appearance to today’s rosés than to red wines, they were generally known as “Rozé,” and widely lauded for their “charming flavour” and “remarkable aroma.”
Centuries of winemaking know-how at Moët & Chandon are the driving force behind the House’s outstanding range of rosé champagnes. The House, had long produced “Rozé” wines along with “blanc de noirs,” white wines made of black grapes.
1801 was the landmark year when Napoléon Bonaparte and his mother Letizia placed an order for 100 bottles of “rozé” with Jean-Remy Moët, grandson of the House’s founder. That same know-how produced the House’s oldest existing bottle of rosé champagne dated 1878, a powerful living symbol of Moët & Chandon’s unrivalled rosé heritage.
Today as rosé champagne becomes a preferred choice of wine connoisseurs, fashion icons and foodies alike, the world’s love affair with Moët & Chandon’s rosé champagne collection grows stronger and stronger as it stands out by its quality and flavour.
Rosé Impérial is a spontaneous, radiant, romantic expression of the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. A captivating bouquet of lively, intense bouquet of tasting notes of red fruits with floral nuances of rose and a slight hint of pepper.
Thanks to their red wine component, Moët & Chandon’s rosé champagnes are an ideal gastronomic companion.
