Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial Rosé is the world’s first rosé champagne made to be enjoyed over ice. We were invited along to sample the new bubbly at the launch on Sydney Harbour. The event took place aboard The Hamptons, one of Sydney’s latest event cruises. As you can see, good times were had by all.
Moët describes its Ice Impérial Rosé as the closest thing to capturing the flavors of a golden pink sunset in a champagne bottle.
The champagne is perfect for celebrations or to be enjoyed as an aperitif. An ode to summer, the Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial Rosé is a perfectly balanced concoction of Pinot Noir (45 to 55 percent, of which 10 percent red wine), Pinot Meunier (35 to 45 percent of which 10 percent red wine) and Chardonnay (limited to 5 to 10 percent). The result is a sophisticated blend of vibrant flavors that both surprise and placate the palette. With the addition of three large ice cubes, at the recommendation of the Moët & Chandon Cellar Master, there is an explosion of intense, fruity aromas and vibrant flavors, thanks to Moët’s singular “on ice” savoir-faire.
As always, friends and family are essential to the Moët & Chandon experience. With nuances of juicy summer fruits, fig, nectarine and an appetizing note of grenadine, no one would blame you if find yourself popping open a bottle over a summery brunch down by the harbor.
You can find Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial Rosé in a select range of bars and restaurants across Sydney. It’s also exclusively available in David Jones for $90 a bottle. The perfect accompaniment to any gathering this summer.
