Grand Vintage Blanc 2009 is a champagne distinguished by its maturity, complexity and charisma. Aged for 7 years, Grand Vintage is a truly unique blend based on the harvest of 2009 extraordinary grapes. Following several vintages in which Chardonnay was dominant, Pinot Noir has taken the spotlight in 2009. The wine’s controlled power is the very backbone of the vintage and the proportion of Pinot Noir has not been this high since 1996.
Wine Spectator 94 points – A sleek, creamy Champagne, with an expressive range of toast, apricot, candied Meyer lemon zest, cassis and pastry cream set in a tightly knit and racy frame. This offers personality now, but the focus and concentration recommends it to the cellar as well. Disgorged February 2017. Drink now through 2030. -AN.July/2018
Vinous 92 points – Moet’s 2009 Extra Brut Grand Vintage is radiant, supple and voluptuous, with all of the generosity of the year front and center. Candied lemon, almond, chamomile, brioche and baked apple tart develop in a rich, inviting champagne that will drink beautifully upon release. A wine of pure and total pleasure, the 2009 is one of those Champagnes that disappears in an instant..July/2018
