As the year comes to a end and we are all stocking up for the traditional champagne moment, it’s time to look back and see which champagnes made the annual list of 100 best champagnes as selected by FINE Champagne magazine and tastingbook.com. This years winner?  Moët & Chandon MCIII

How did they select the winner? This is done after days of blind tasting, and scoring each champagne. The editorial teams of FINE Champagne magazine and tasting.com, can warmly recommend any champagne in the Top 100, but as they say themselves, there can only be one winner. This year choice is Moët & Chandon MCIII NV.

As quoted by tasting.com”, The number three in MCIII refers to its various ageing universes: wood, metal and glass. The wines of the latest harvest year (2003 in this case) are fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wood refers to oak vats, where older reserve wines (2002, 2000 and 1998) have aged. The glass, in turn, refers to bottle-matured champagnes that crown the blend (1999, 1998 and 1993). A big proportion of reserve wines and long ageing result in a beautifully mature and complex, generously vinous champagne that develops majestically in the glass.”
