The love story began in 1745 when Louis XV’s favourite, The Marquise de Pompadour, who surrounded herself with the greatest artists and philosophers of the era, proclaimed that “champagne is the only wine that leaves a woman beautiful after drinking”. Some of the greatest women in history have contributed to the renown of Moët & Chandon champagne. Both Napoleon’s mother and his wife, Josephine, were its powerful proponents under the First Empire. Brut Impérial is a balanced assemblage of the three vine varieties disclosing a succession of elegant and harmonious sensations, a fresh maturity, supple and refined lines, inspiring well-being and an emotion which is appreciated and shared.
Moët Ice Impérial Rosé has a gleaming, vivid pink color with golden highlights. Its vibrant, fruity bouquet has scents mainly of fragrant red berries and cherries (Morello cherry, lingonberry, cranberry), with nuances of juicy summer fruits (fig, nectarine) and an appetizing note of grenadine. Its luscious palate combines sweetness and firmness: the sweetness reminiscent of berries disperses and becomes lighter, there is a harmonious balance of freshness and fruitiness, and a refreshing finish with a deliciously bittersweet note of pink grapefruit.
