Moët & Chandon, world famous champagne house founded by Claude Moët in 1743, has launched a new champagne.The new champagne, the MCIII, contains 37% of chardonnay and pinot noir vinified in stainless steel vats.
According to Moët & Chandon, “This layer endows an intense fruity dimension to the wine that evokes the sophistication and the sparkle of summer”.
The new blend will also contain a high proportion of “Grand Vintage” wines hailing from 1998, 2000 and 2002 partially matured in oak barrels. The final ingredients include champagnes from the bottled Grand Vintage collection dating from the 1999, 1998 and 1993 vintages. The luxury producer notes that “this layer completes the balance of the blend. Deep and roasted notes reinforce the remarkable impression of maturity while enhancing the vitality.”
The MCIII name references the initials of the house and the three layer blending process.
The wine has been matured in the cellars for 10 years.
The MCIII is available directly from the Moët & Chandon house for £450.
