Reviews and Ratings

Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Yes please! Toasted nuts and buttered toast, the breakfast Champagne of champions.
A classic way to mark any celebration.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Toasty biscuit, complex, saline minerality, well-balanced. Tart raw apple, baked pear brioche, a hint of mayer lemon. Long finish with persistence of apple, candied lemon peel. Pair with almost anything at any time of the day. Pair with pan seared sea scallops and risotto, or kettle cooked potato chips. @jonsteeves rated 93/100 - bespoketastings.ca
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This one should definitely find a home in your cellar and on your table. Lots of buttery toast, lemon, green apple and peach. Lively bubbles on the palate with a full, silky body. Long, lemon-brioche finish. Tasted November 27, 2016.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Pretty aromas of white apple, biscuit, white flowers, apricot, and sea salt. Lots of fine bubbles.High acidity and a smooth taste of apricot and apple. The finish is long and smooth. Perfect for almost any occasion.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Moet - a champagne that screams celebration! There are lovely notes of tree fruit and hints of citrus. The palate bursts with glazed brioche, candied lemon, divine minerality, and elegant mousse. Another classic creation from an outstanding producer!
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful toasty notes with a crisp bubble. Some citrus and green apple come through on the palate. Lengthy finish. Enjoy this with oysters or just on its own.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Champagne is for birthdays,it's for holidays and champagne is for lovers. If any of these apply to you , here's a beauty! With delicate floral and tree fruit aromas, a palate that is biscuity and rich, with lemon and pear flavours and a mouth-watering acidity, its fine mousse will make you feel like singing.
Moet & Chandon, founded in 1743 and still an excellent choice.
Nicole Lougheed rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Champagne displays a beautiful, persistent mousse and rich flavours of brioche, pear and apricot balanced by zings of citrus and mineral. I think this will appeal to most palates (except those who prefer bone-dry sparklers). While not the most complex Champagne offering out there, in my opinion it's a great QPR bubbly - which means you don't have to wait for a special occasion to crack the Champagne!
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The party Champers for a crowd. Always a treat, it is well-structured and balanced with fine mousse; classic aromas and flavours of nuts, lemon, lime and toast. Happy wine, happy time!
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Presentation: Classic, distinctive Moet & Chandon
Appearance: Pale gold colour
Nose: Light nose, with lychee, yeast and caramel/toffee notes
Taste: Dry, intense taste with a multitude of fine yet sharp bubbles, with green apples, lime rind, white grapefruit rind
Finish: Long finish with strong notes of citrus rind
Overall impression: A good Champagne to cleanse the palate or to have with high acidity foods.
Value: 3.5/5
Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Had this sparking wine the night we got the keys to our first house. I've tried it again five years later and it still hasn't won me over. Aromas of golden delicious apple. Very effervescent on the palette with tastes of lemon.
Janneke rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Lovely, dry. Present for New Year
