Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Brut Rosé Champagne 2006 is a 47% Pinot Noir (including 23% still Pinot Noir), 33% Chardonnay, and 20% Pinot Meunier blend.
The fourth release in the history of Moët & Chandon Champagne House is a ripe and generous Rose. Cookies and gingerbread notes followed by stone fruits such as cherry, damson, or even prunes introduce this 2006. Herb nuances complete this bouquet with rosemary, saffron, and dried rose. The finish is sappy, almost saline. The Grand Vintage Brut Rosé Champagne 2006 is a powerful, full-bodied, and hearty wine.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Moët's 40th vintage Rosé, the salmon-colored 2006 Grand Vintage Rosé Brut, assembles 47% Pinot Noir (of which 23% is red wine), 33% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier; it opens with a deep, complex, precise, fresh, elegant and well focused bouquet of red berries, nougat, plums, cherries, flint stone, wax and frankincense. Full-bodied, rich, intense and powerful on the palate, with a good concentration, licorice flavors, a firmly structured elegance and persistent finish, this is a remarkably pure though complex Rosé Champagne. It has grip and tension, but also finesse and freshness. No need to drink this Millésime all too soon. This sample was disgorged in September 2013 with a dosage of five grams per liter.
