Moët-&-Chandon Grand Vintage Rosé 2008
Wine SpectatorHints of honey and toast enrich flavors of crushed black cherry, raspberry, singed orange peel, mineral and licorice snap in this bright, spiced rosé. Shows lovely integration. Vibrant acidity drives the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2028.
Wine EnthusiastFrom a very fine vintage, this structured, tight while also fruity Champagne is poised and stylish. A creamy mousse balances the crisp texture and beautiful acidity. Red fruits and blood orange come through well at the end. It is ready to drink.
Wine AdvocateMoët & Chandon's intensely colored 2008 Grand Vintage Rosé is dominated by Pinot Noir (50% or more along with roughly 30% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier) and contains 20% of red wine. It is released earlier than the white counterpart, which is scheduled for the second half of 2016 due to its strong acidity, which chef de cave Benoît Gouez finds "a bit too prominent," though "not as crazy as the 1996 acidity." The color of the 2008 GV Rosé is that of a candied cherry and indicates a nice maturity. Fresh, red fruit aromas on the nose lead to a dry and complex palate cleanser with discreet vegetal aromas. This is a pure, yet still young cuvée that finishes with a stimulating grip.
