According to the Wine Enthusiast: "The best-selling Champagne in the world has only recently been introduced to this country, replacing the White Star label. Moët maintains an impressive consistency with this lemon- and lime-flavored wine, smooth but crisp, and esay to drink." (12/09) According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Imperial is a straightforward, tasty Champagne made in a easygoing style, with good length and a clean, refreshing finish. And, according to Wine Spectator: "Just off-dry, showing apple, ginger and honey notes. Rich and soft, filling the finish with a clean, ginger aftertaste. Drink now."
The NV Imperial is a straightforward, tasty Champagne made in a easygoing style, with good length and a clean, refreshing finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

its not a $400 Bollinger, but for none special occasions, $32 & free shipping, its a great deal.
My favorite all around champagne was Moet White Star. When the Concorde was still flying this was the Air France departure lounge champagne and I often liked it even better than the much more expensive champagnes served on the plane.
I find Imperial much too dry with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It becomes much better when one puts several drops of simple sugar syrup in the glass before pouring the champagne. Most of my guests agree.
color : pale yellow with shades of green.Aroma : subtly vinous, with a vine and lime blossom attack.Palate : delicate well-balanced ; leaves behind a sense of harmony, mellowness.
