Moët & Chandon Impérial Brut NV: A Celebration in Every Sip

Moët & Chandon's Impérial Brut NV is a true icon of the Champagne region. As the world's best-selling Champagne, it embodies everything this prestigious area is known for: elegance, vibrancy, and a touch of glamour. Here at The General Wine, we're proud to offer this celebratory sparkler online and in our shops in Liphook and Petersfield.

A Blend for Every Occasion

Crafted from a masterful blend of over 100 different wines, Impérial Brut NV showcases the diversity and richness of Champagne grapes. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Meunier come together in a harmonious dance, with 20-30% reserve wines from previous vintages adding complexity and consistency. This meticulous selection process ensures a Champagne that delivers an unforgettable experience every time.

A Feast for the Senses

On the Eye: Impérial Brut NV boasts a beautiful golden straw yellow colour with delicate green highlights. The fine, persistent bubbles rise elegantly in the glass, hinting at the delightful refreshment to come.

On the Nose: The first whiff reveals a vibrant bouquet of citrus fruits, primarily lemon and orange zest. As the aroma unfolds, fresh orchard fruits like pear, apple, and white peach join the party. Hints of white flowers, such as lime blossom, add a touch of elegance, while subtle notes of brioche and fresh nuts lend a touch of complexity.

On the Palate: The first sip of Impérial Brut NV is a delightful explosion of flavours. The bright acidity of citrus fruits dances on the tongue, balanced perfectly by the sweetness of ripe orchard fruits. A creamy texture, reminiscent of brioche, adds a touch of richness, while the persistent, fine bubbles create a delightful effervescence. The finish is clean and refreshing, leaving a lingering taste of citrus and white fruits.

Food Pairings for Every Course

Impérial Brut NV's versatility makes it a fantastic pairing for a wide range of dishes. Here are some suggestions to elevate your next meal:

  • Apéritif: Enjoy a glass of Impérial Brut NV on its own as a sophisticated and celebratory aperitif.
  • Canapés and Starters: The Champagne's bright acidity and creamy texture make it a perfect match for light canapés, such as smoked salmon blinis or goat cheese crostini. It also complements starters like oysters, scallops, or a fresh seafood salad beautifully.
  • Main Courses: Impérial Brut NV's versatility extends to main courses. Lighter options like roast chicken, pan-seared fish, or creamy pasta dishes find a perfect complement in this Champagne.
  • Desserts: While Brut styles typically pair well with savoury dishes, Impéral Brut NV's touch of sweetness makes it a surprising match for some desserts. Consider pairing it with fruit tarts, crème brûlée, or even a light cheesecake.
