Vintage Champagne 1992 & 1993: Panel tasting results
Moët & Chandon, Grand Vintage 1992 (disgorged June 2004)
Originally released as Brut Impérial, when Moët’s winemaking was still very formulaic, but as its stunning performance demonstrates, a formulaic approach did not necessarily impede quality. In fact, all it meant was that the emphasis was on house style, whereas the aim today is to reflect the vintage. The winemaker was Dominique Foulon and, consistent with these results, this 1992 won Gold at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards and the 1993 collected Silver. This 1992 is a blend of 40% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 15% Pinot Meunier, with a dosage of 7.5 grams/litre.
Decanter average score 19.25pts/20 (97/100pts)
