Moët Rosé Impérial is a spontaneous and radiant expression of the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, enticing palate and elegant maturity. Aged for twenty-one months minimum in the Maison’s cellars, Moët Rosé Impérial combines a lively, intense bouquet of red fruits, floral nuances of rose, and a slight hint of pepper. Its expressive palate combines intensity and suppleness with the juicy, persistent intensity of berries, the fleshiness and firmness of peach, and the freshness of a subtle note of menthol.

Far from a champagne only for dessert, Moët Rosé Impérial is exceptional when paired like a still red or rosé wine with dishes such as beef carpaccio with olive oil and ground pepper, ratatouille of fresh vegetables or red summer fruit salad with mint. Available at uk.moet.com and selected independent retailers from January 2016 onwards, at a suggested RSP of £39.99

Veuve Clicquot

The Veuve CliquotRosé is the end result of a desire to create a rosé champagne with a delightfully luscious, fruit-based charm. In keeping with the house style, the blend is created from 12% red wine grape. The nose is generous and elegant, with initial aromas of fresh red fruit (wild strawberry, cherry and blackberry) leading to biscuit notes of dried fruits and Viennese pastries.

Avsilble at most major retailers for RRP £40
