Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Champagne 2000

Touch of SO2 but that blows off. Bready/toasty lees, stone fruits and pretty florals. Rich and round palate although an initial sharpness (possibly the sulphur). Good long finish with yeast and stone fruits lingering. Very good wine once it cleans up in the glass, and better than last year’s Christmas bottle.

Épernay, Champagne, France

    • Hi Tony. A good price, if you can find any, would be around $100. The current M&C vintage is the 2002 (Caro’s have it for $95). Glengarry’s has a good selection of vintage champers (including some 2000s, although 2002 is considered a better vintage). The Pol cuvees are usually among my top wines – rarely been I been disappointed by Polly R!
