TASTING NOTES: Giuseppe De Siena
BOUQUET: fresh, crystalline and strong with secret hints of white pepper and gardenia.

Blending the world's largest collection of champagne of all time, Moët & Chandon's Grand Vintages are exclusively crafted from years of exceptional vintage. The lively 2004 Grand Vintage, playful and sophisticated, is the result of the generous 2004 harvest, an unusually docile growing season that produced thriving vines and exquisitely ripe grapes.
AN EXCELLENT VINTAGE
The Grand Vintage 2004 represents an evolution in the philosophy of the Maison's best vintage wines. From the Grand Vintage 2000 to the Grand Vintage 2004, the choice of assembly (the relative proportions of the three grape varieties) depends more than ever on the particular qualities of the fruit rather than on the accepted conventions, further extending the period. approach, which balances tradition and innovation, is appropriate for the Maison, which is a pioneer in its sector, and for a champagne that constitutes a personal, artistic and exemplary interpretation of the vintage by the Chef de Cave of Moët & Chandon, Benoît Gouez. It is he who makes the decision to grant the vintage qualification, based on his vintage rating, and offers the opportunity, and also the challenge, to express the essence of that year in a truly unique combination. "Every Grand Vintage from Moët & Chandon must tell a story and offer a new experience. The selection of base wines is carefully based on character, personality, difference and uniqueness", says Benoît Gouez. "The Grand Vintage 2004 possesses a simple elegance and uniqueness that is an irresistible attraction for lovers of delicately aged champagne." Moët & Chandon presented the Grand Vintage 2004 in Épernay on 17 and 18 September, where twelve Michelin-starred chefs and twelve of the best sommeliers in the world gathered to perform an exceptional pairing of food and wine in the historic spaces of the Maison Moët & Chandon .
