A grand old time

Drinks: Sparkling, Wines

Moët & Chandon has introduced its 2004 Grand Vintage and it’s another corker. Chef de caves, Benoît Gouez described the wine as ‘Similar to the 2000, but with more brightness, purity and precision of flavour.’ There are notes of brioche, apricot and hints of tropical fruit, with a long honey and apple finish.

The vintage – Moët’s 70th – was launched at a glittering event in Champagne, where 12 of the world’s best sommeliers teamed up with a dozen Michelin-starred chefs to create the perfect food match, with Jan Konetzki and Claire Smyth, from Restaurant Gordon Ramsay and Luke Rayment from Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s representing Team GB.
