Description & Technical Information
-
Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Cellar Master's interpretation of the singular year that is produced. The Möet & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit is founded on three essential values: Freedom of interpretation, selection of the year's most remarkable wines and individuality of the vintage. Moet & Chandon 2009 is the 73rd Grand vintage produced and is the first Pinot Noir dominated vintage in many years.

Weather:
The 2009 vintage was a continental, sunny year with a real winter that was very cold and dry followed by a glorious sun-filled summer and almost no rain in August and September. The harvest was incomparable in terms of quality and produced consistent, fresh and crunchy grapes. The harvest took place during the habitat dates, beginning on September 12th in Aube and in the Epernay area to the 28th in Verzenay.

Antonio Galloni MW
“Moët’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. ”

“Beautiful fruity nose with ripe, lush Pinot Noir taking the lead role but there is also a strong presence of tropical Chardonnay fruit. Pristinely clean fruitiness and charmingly creamy texture on the easy to approach, soft palate, which comes with both length and width. A friendly, fruity vintage, which also has the structure to age. ”

“50% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Meunier (highest proportion of Pinot Noir since 1996), from predominantly grand and premier crus. Aged for seven years on the lees. Dosage 5 g/l. Disgorged January 2017. Mytik Diam technological cork closure.
Tasted blind. A certain amount of tension on the nose. Pear juice and round and satiny. Quite similar in quality to the other vintage of Moët tasted alongside [the 2008]. Long. Rich. But chewy on the end. More obvious acidity [than the 2008]. ”

“Magnum. The year was full of excesses in all directions. Lush, fruit-driven vintage with the highest proportion of Pinot Noir since 1996.
Fine and rather majestic with an attractive savoury spine. Lots of fun and bumptious fruit and attraction. Lightly bitter finish. Quite long. A very good Grand Vintage. Melon-like fruit.”
