Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial

Australia is blessed with summer during the festive season and what better way to get festive with bubbles than to sip on the first-ever champagne made to be served on ice.

Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial

Champagne house Moët & Chandon has created Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial, a sweeter style of champagne with fine bubbles that is meant to be enjoyed with plenty of ice. Presented in elegant white, Moët Ice Impérial is made up primarily of Pinot Noir (40-50%), which gives it structure and intensity, Pinot Meunier (30-40%) for a richer mouthfeel and Chardonnay (10-20%) which adds a touch of sharp acidity and a refreshing finish.

Moët & Chandon recommend enjoying it over a lot of ice with a sprig of mint, a zest of lime or white grapefruit, or a few cardamom seeds. It drinks equally well without ice provided it’s very chilled which highlights the full fruity flavour.
