Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008 Champagne 75cl

Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Champagne 2008 normally £80 is now £60 to celebrate the 2008 vintage release. It is unique and possesses the distinctive, imitable qualities of that year’s outstanding grapes, qualities which have been elevated to their fullest expression through the savoir-faire, experience and expertise of Moët & Chandon and the House’s chef de cave.

The 2008 Grand Vintage offers floral notes of linden, honeysuckle with citrus nuances evocative of  mandarin orange zest along with a dash of anise and green tomato. Following are notes of just-ripe stone fruits - white peach, nectarine and Mirabelle plums. The bouquet is completed by gentle scents of pastry, brioche, frangipane, almonds and vanilla with a slight hint of white pepper. This vintage is vivacious and lively. The underlying acidity orients the linear, focused palate; the tautness is enveloped and channelled by the texture of succulent notes of white fruits which guide the freshness toward a vibrant, mouth-watering finish with a lingering note of citrus fruit.


Pairs well with…

  • Lamb
  • Seafood
  • Shellfish
  • Venison
Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir
Although temperatures were in line with 30-year averages, 2008 can still be considered a cooler year in comparison to the last decade, similar to 2004 and 1998. Winter was mild and spring mostly rainy and grey. Summer was particularly cool but, fortunately, dry as well. September was the key month for the 2008 vintage: the initial rains were swept away by a north-westerly wind that favoured proper ripening, healthy grapes and a smooth harvest, which was officially open from September 12th to 27th. At 9°8, the potential alcohol level fell within the averages for the decade and it was the high acid balance (8.6 g H2SO4/l total acidity per 2.98 pH) that was the salient characteristic of this vintage, which was preceded by several “warm” vintages. Such acidity in a mature vintage had not been encountered since 1995 and 1996. In another significant occurrence, all three varietals were in perfect health.
Pairs perfectly with fish, seafood or veal.
