Champagne Grand Vintage 2009 from Maison Moët & Chandon is fulfilled and accomplished. Following several vintages in which Chardonnay was dominant, Pinot Noir has taken the spot lighting 2009 (50%). The wine’s controlled power is the very backbone of the vintage.
Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Cellar Master’s free, personal interpretation in service of revealing the exceptional personality of singular vintage years. Grand Vintage 2009 perfectly embodies the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit, a spirit founded on three essential values: freedom of interpretation, selection of the year’s most remarkable wines, and individuality of the vintage, for champagnes distinguished by their maturity, complexity and charisma.
Following 7 years of ageing in cellars, Grand Vintage 2009 offers to the nose soft notes of vanilla gradually expand into darker, toastier notes of roasted almonds and mocha, with hints of juicy, fleshy fruits completed by roses and peony aromas.
On the palate, the initial impression is welcoming, full-bodied and smooth, followed by a silky fluid texture ; the controlled power of the Pinot Noir, with notes of honey and mild spices, is underscored by a stimulating nuance of pink grapefruit. Overall, the palate is generous and light simultaneously.
2009 : A very great vintage presented in a superb casket.
