A birthday celebration is always more complete with champagne, particularly one as amazing as this one. The Moet & Chandon Champagne Imperialwas a gift from dear friends, and was a great accompaniment for fresh sushi (courtesy of Kurumi). We popped this bubbly and hit the chopsticks with big smiles. It was light, fruity, and had a deft touch that helped make the night into a memory. Here’s what the big shots say about it:
The color is an elegant golden straw yellow with amber highlights. Its aromas are radiant, revealing bright yellow-fleshed fruits (i.e., apple, pear, yellow peach), honey, floral nuances (e.g., lime blossom) and elegant blond notes (i.e., brioche and fresh nuts). The palate is seductive, richly flavorful and smooth combining generosity and subtlety, fullness and vigor, followed by a delicately fresh crispiness (fruit with seeds), to reveal the magical balance of champagne.
A must-have again soon!
