Break all champagne rules this summer with Moët Ice Imperial

Break all champagne rules this summer with Moët Ice Imperial

As the world’s first-ever champagne specifically created to be enjoyed on ice during daytime, Moët Ice Impérial breaks the traditional champagne norms - in style. Moët & Chandon invites champagne lovers around New Zealand to break free to a stylish summer escape with the launch of Moët Ice Impérial. Harbourside and Soul Bar & Bistro in the Auckland Viaduct will be exclusive hosts to Moët Ice Impérial’s groundbreaking take on iconic Moët & Chandon luxury.

This innovation perfectly represents the champagne House, which has been celebrated for its pioneering approach to sharing the magic of champagne around the globe. Inspired by the House’s unparalleled 270 years of heritage and winemaking savoir-faire, it could only be Moët & Chandon who would first innovate this new frontier in champagne.

“We created Moët Ice Impérial to offer a refreshing new champagne experience while remaining true to Moët & Chandon’s centuries of celebrated winemaking style,” says Benoît Gouez, Chef de Cave of Moët & Chandon. “Intense, fruity and fresh, Moët Ice Impérial is not only the embodiment of summer celebrations, but a new frontier in champagne.” Moët Ice Impérial’s crisp freshness and powerful tropical fruit aromas are an instant summer escape in a glass. Served over ice in large cabernet-style glasses that enhance the crisp, freshness experience, Moët Ice Impérial can be personalised according to taste preferences with garnishes including mint leaves, a slice of cucumber, lime or white grapefruit zest, a thin slice of ginger, cardamom seeds or red fruits such as strawberries and raspberries.

It’s fruity and intense nose combines the powerful fruit flavors of tropical fruits like mango and guava, the generosity of stone fruits such as nectarine and an original note of raspberry and gooseberry. The generous palate combines roundness and freshness such as the broad fleshy and voluptuous flavor of a fresh fruit salad, the captivating sweetness or caramel and quince jelly, and the refreshing acidity of gooseberry and ginger notes.

Moët Ice Imperial will be exclusively served at Harbourside and Soul Bar & Bistro from October 2013 to March 2014. Diners will also have the chance to win a bottle of Moët Ice Imperial plus dinner for two and experience a stylish summer escape at either of these restaurants, simply by capturing their favourite summer moment using the Moët & Chandon Ice Impérial app and uploading their photo on Instagram with #moeticeimperialnz between 01 October and 01 February.
