Moet Ice Imperial launched

Gosling's Ltd have launched Moët Ice Impérial into the local market, at an event on Sunday at The Waterlot Inn.

Bermuda is a second tier launch market for the new Champagne, which is especially made to be poured over ice, and is produced for the outdoor, summer market.

Moët developed the new Champagne after observing a trend developing: people were drinking wine and regular brut champagne — on ice.

They stated: “So, there is definitely a need for more spontaneous, casual chic and refreshing Champagne experience during daytime consumption when the weather is hot. Moreover sensory perceptions are altered in hot weather conditions. But Champagne on ice loses its identity with the dilution of the ice.”

Because it was created for serving on ice, Moet explains it features a fruity intensity, richness in the mouth and fresh finish.

Tasting notes for the Champagne say: “The profile of the wines used in its blend have been meticulously selected for their specific contribution: a predominance of winey, angular Pinot Noir (40 to 50 percent), both for its fruity intensity and for the integrating structure it confers on the dosage; full, fleshy Pinot Meunier (30 to 40 percent), for its richness and fondue in the mouth; and Chardonnay (10 to 20 percent) with a touch of sharp acidity for a refreshing finish.

The official Mo?t Ice Impérial launch event was hosted by Moët Hennessy's marketing manager for the Caribbean Region, Matthieu Florentin, and April Gosling Naudé, senior marketing manager at Gosling's Limited.

The Moët Ice Impérial was served with a selection of sweet and savoury canapés, to illustrate the versatility of the product when pairing it with food.

They included prosciutto and melon lolly pops, watermelon shots with balsamic caviar, and cauliflower cream. Sweet canapés were mini lemon merengue pies, and mini New York cheese cakes.
