Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 1992 Champagne 75cl
Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1992 is distinguished by its maturity and harmony. The progression is complex: both sweet and roasted, with notes of pastry and candy (crème brûlée, nougat, cappuccino, honey, vanilla, pine bonbons.)

Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Champagne 1992 was disgorged June 2004 and released as Brut Impérial, when Moet's winemaking was still very formulaic, but as this wine demonstrates, a formulaic approach did not necessarily impede quality. The emphasis was on house style, whereas the aim today is to reflect the vintage. Dominique Foulon was the wine maker and the 1992 won Gold at Decanter World Wine Awards and the 1993 collected Silver. Decanter average score 97/100pts.
