MOЁT & CHANDON “GRAND VINTAGE ROSÉ 2008” Distinctive Balance and Delightful Tartness
MOËT & CHANDON GRAND VINTAGE ROSÉ 2008 has been released. The unadulterated acidity and vivid hue that characterizes this vintage highlights the skill of chef Benoît Gouez as Chef de Cave. Founded in 1743, the year 2008 provided the 41st vintage rosé for MOËT & CHANDON. Ordinarily for a Grand Vintage, the blanc is released first, or at the same time as the rosé. This time, however, the rosé was unveiled first, ahead of blanc. There are two reasons for this. One is the global popularity of rosé.Chef de Cave Benoît Gouez says, “Until twenty years ago when I came into this industry, rosé accounted for only three percent of all Champagnes. Now, though, it is about ten percent. At MOËT & CHANDON, it goes up to twenty percent. This popularity led to the 2006 Grand Vintage Rosé being sold out before the blanc, and while being irregular, to the rosé being released first.Another reason is the distinctively sharp acidity of the 2008 vintage. 2008 was the coldest year in the past ten years. In particular, overnight temperatures were low. It has a total acidity of 8.6 grams per liter, which is a whole gram higher than average years.

He goes on to say,“The twenty percent red wine making up the Champagne gives it a softness, which has made the Rosé ready to drink slightly earlier.”
Rosé that pairs well with any dish
Without necessarily having to be a duet with the blanc, the Grand Vintage Rosé 2008 can satisfy perfectly as a solo selection. When tasting this cuvée, you will see for yourself the reason why MOËT & CHANDON rosés are so popular.
