Rosé Friday: Moët & Chandon Impèrial Rosé!

moet_rose_imperial_nv_750Moët & Chandon Brut Impèrial Rosè is a blend of the three grape varieties, with an emphasis on Pinot Noir. This particular brut is gorgeous for a summer brunch! Embodying a fruity and daring character, this rosè is balanced, mineral driven, and refreshing, with shades of copper and nice acidity. 

This Champagne displays lively and expressive aromas dominated by a nose of wild strawberries. It is full-bodied, with zestful, assertive fruitiness and goes extremely well with Zucchini Pasta made fresh at Giovanni Rana NYC, topped with onions, tomatoes, asparagus, and bacon. This sweet, salty, and savory dish is light and comforting. The smooth fresh pasta combined with the salty bacon and the raspberry driven wine make quite the compliment to each other.

Bubbles can stand up to a lot of dishes, so don’t “knock em’ till you try em'”. I enjoy Moët & Chandon Impèrial Rosé with other cuisines as well such as Steak Frites, Asian cuisine (as seen in this post), and even with some Chocolate Covered Coconut Almonds (from Trader Joe’s).
