A few weeks back, I had the pleasure of visiting the cellars of
Moët & Chandon, in Epernay, France. Amid 250 years of history and millions of dusty bottles of champagne, I tasted Moët & Chandon’s Grand Vintage 2002. While I love the stuff, I’m no champagne connoisseur, but as soon as the incredible aroma hit my nose, I could tell this was a cut above the bubbly I usually quaff. Although you may not get the chance to sip this vintage in quite so apt surrounds, just close your eyes and imagine you’re in a cave-like, romantically lit room with dashing Frenchmen, and you’ll have a pretty close approximation.
Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2002 is available at the LCBO.
