On the Rocks
Since a craze for drinking Champagne on the rocks took hold on France’s Côte d’azur last summer, Moët & Chandon has been launching its Ice Impérial blend around the globe, most recently in Manila. The champagne is the first created to go over ice, and is denser, sweeter and fruitier than Moët’s other blends. It is made of mostly pinot noir and pinot meunier, plus some chardonnay. It’s a round and lively champagne in a unique white bottle that begs to be drunk on its own or with sliced fruit, such as citrus and melon, and mint. Don’t forget your plastic glasses for the pool, beach or boat.
