Description

Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Moet & Chandon Chef de Cave’s personal, free interpretation of the singular qualities of that year’s grapes. The House’s 73rd vintage, Grand Vintage 2009, has an obvious maturity. The initial nuances of the bouquet are harvest notes and vanilla which gradually expand into darker, toastier notes (grilles sesame seeds, roasted almonds, mocha). Concurrently, hints of juicy, flesh fruits (peaches, apricots) and a floral scent of roses and peonies round out the delicate ensemble. On the palate, the controlled power of the Pinot Noir, with notes of honey and mild spices, is underscored by a nuance of pink grapefruit.

Blend: 50% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay, 14% Meunier

94 Points Wine Spectator - 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

93 Points Wine Enthusiast - Taking advantage of the natural richness of this vintage, this wine is ripe and soft, hinting at yeastiness as well as retaining plenty of attractive acidity. This balanced wine is powerfully rich and ready to drink now.

92 Points James Suckling - Some houses have threaded this riper vintage into a handy cuvée and Moët is one of these. Ripe-pear and toasted-brioche aromas here, while the palate has attractive, vinous, fleshy fruit. Peach and light cherry notes to close. Drink or hold.
