Moët's 2008 Grand Vintage Rosé is fabulous. Light on its feet and gracious, the 2008 impresses with exceptional balance and crystalline purity. There is a translucence to the 2008 that is impossible to miss. Sweet rose petal, autumn leaves, tobacco, mint and licorice are woven together in an intricate fabric of aromas and textures. Wiry and sculpted in the style of the year, the 2008 Grand Vintage Rosé is fabulous. Light on its feet and gracious, the 2008 impresses with exceptional balance and is probably the single most impressive young Champagne I have tasted from Moët in some time. The 2008 is 46% Pinot Noir (of which 20% red wine), 32% Chardonnay, 225 Pinot Meunier. Dosage is 5 grams per liter.

Hints of honey and toast enrich flavors of crushed black cherry, raspberry, singed orange peel, mineral and licorice snap in this bright, spiced rosé. Shows lovely integration. Vibrant acidity drives the lingering, smoky finish. Drink now through 2028.

From a very fine vintage, this structured, tight while also fruity Champagne is poised and stylish. A creamy mousse balances the crisp texture and beautiful acidity. Red fruits and blood orange come through well at the end. It is ready to drink.

Moët & Chandon's intensely colored 2008 Grand Vintage Rosé is dominated by Pinot Noir (50% or more along with roughly 30% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier) and contains 20% of red wine. It is released earlier than the white counterpart, which is scheduled for the second half of 2016 due to its strong acidity, which chef de cave Benoît Gouez finds "a bit too prominent," though "not as crazy as the 1996 acidity." The color of the 2008 GV Rosé is that of a candied cherry and indicates a nice maturity. Fresh, red fruit aromas on the nose lead to a dry and complex palate cleanser with discreet vegetal aromas. This is a pure, yet still young cuvée that finishes with a stimulating grip.
