DecanterRating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Many 1996 Champagne rosés are being released now, and Moët's is one of the most seductive. To a fine vintage blend of 40% Chardonnay, 55% Pinot Noir and 5% Pinot Meunier has been added 15% red wine from top vineyards to produce the burnished copper colour
