Moet-Chandon-Grand-Vintage-2009

Moet & Chandon, 'Grand Vintage', 2009

A blend of 50% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay, and 14% Meunier.
“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. The first impression is that of an obvious and reassuring maturity. Gentle and comforting, initial nuances of harvest notes and notes of callisson and vanilla gradually expand into darker, toastier notes of grilled sesame seeds, roasted almonds and mocha. Concurrently, hints of juicy, fleshy fruits create a deeply warm, serene atmosphere reminiscent of an orchard of peaches and apricots in the middle of summer. The floral scent of roses and peonies rounds out an ensemble of radiance and delicacy.” – Winemaker Notes
