WE 95 WS 93 IWC 92 Vinous 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - "This offers great balance between the freshest fruit and toasty maturity. That poise gives this impressive Champagne a tension, a high wire act that works superbly. It is rich, full of fruit but also with great depth. It will certainly age, so drink now or hold through 2019."
According to Wine Spectator - "A rich note of smoky mineral heralds this harmonious Champagne, while the vibrant, citrusy acidity and finely detailed bead support flavors of poached apricot, black currant, spun honey and candied kumquat. Offers a fine, creamy finish." Drink now through 2026."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Light yellow. Pungent aromas of poached pear, tangerine and toasty lees, with a stony nuance adding vivacity. Silky and expansive on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors and an emerging hint of smokiness. Finishes sappy and very long, with excellent clarity and a whiplash of chalky minerals."
According to Antonio Galloni - "Moët's 2006 Brut Grand Vintage is beautiful, finessed and expressive. Smoke, slate, apricot and pastry notes emerge as the wine gradually unfolds. Rich and textured on the palate, yet beautifully supported by veins of minerality, the 2006 is simply impeccable from the very first taste. The richer, honeyed notes typical of Chardonnay in this vintage are particularly evident today while the Meunier, which has higher acidity, keeps things bright, although it plays a lesser part in the overall blend than in years past. The 2006 is 42% Chardonnay, 39% Pinot Noir and 19% Pinot Meunier. " 12.5% ABV.
