Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage Champagne 2009 x6
50% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Meunier
Ideal as an aperitif, or whole baby snapper baked in rock salt.
Pale bright yellow, green reflections, a fine, persistent bead.
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.
The initial impression is welcoming, full-bodied and smooth, an instant sensation of an enveloping, soothing cocoon. Subsequently, the silky fluid texture becomes evident; 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 simultaneously accomplished, generous and airy.
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.
