Rosé Imperial displays a pink color with amber highlights. Lively and intense, the bouquet exudes red fruits (wild strawberry, raspberry, cherry) with floral nuances of rose and a slight hint of pepper. On the palate, the wine shows a juicy intensity of berries (strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant) rounded out by the fleshiness and firmness of peach and the freshness of a subtle note of mint.
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
