MOËT & CHANDON Extra Brut Grand Vintage Champagne 2013
93 points “Moët's 2013 Extra Brut Grand Vintage is a real success wafting from the glass with aromas of pear fresh bread Meyer lemon nougat and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied chiselled and fine-boned with an enveloping core of bright vibrant fruit and a pretty pinpoint mousse it concludes with a precise penetrating finish. Incisive but not austere it's an impressive effort reflecting good levels of maturity in this cool late harvest. It's as fine a rendition of this cuvée as I can remember tasting.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
