    July 24, 2020 - disappointing brut imperiale clearly below the Reserve - pretty enticing - with much less minerality and some aromatic notes I do not like that much in champagne. In a fresh evening at Chiavari well paired with calamarata with sea urchin with M&Costi first time

    June 25, 2020 - Sensationally good Champagne. Obviously the rose Cristal offers an ultimate! Luxury Champagne experience but I've had Imperial endless times over the years and it's the classic for me.

Winedoctor

    March 2007 (link) 14 points

    (NV Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial) Lots of sulphur here, over notes of herbal, crushed rock character. Full, creamy, softly sweet, with a rich, foamy mousse. Firm, herbal character, fading away a touch thereafter. And lots of sulphur again. This is quite good at best.

    August 2000 (link) 15 points

    (NV Moët et Chandon Brut Impérial Champagne) Purchased Summer 2000. A pale golden hue. The nose carries pithy citrus fruits, with background nuances of butter and bready yeasts, which become more prominent with aeration. A sharp, acidic mousse, although this also settles with time. Fairly rich, with good leesy complexity. Clean citrus finish.
