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. 

It has a light, appealing colour, pale bright yellow, green reflections, a fine, persistent bead with a fulfilling, reassuring bouquet.

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. It is welcoming, full-bodied and smooth, an instant sensation of an enveloping, soothing cocoon. 

Subequently, the silky fluid texture becomes evident; 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 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. 

Every Grand Vintage is unique and original, the Cellar Master’s free, personal interpretation in service of revealing the exceptional personality of singular vintage years. 

Grand Vintage 2009 perfectly embodies the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage spirit, a spirit founded on three essential values:

  • Freedom of interpretation.
  • Selection of the year’s most remarkable wines.
  • Individuality of the vintage.

For champagnes distinguished by their maturity, complexity and charisma.

 

Perhaps the most alluring and iconic Champagne today, Moët & Chandon Impérial was created in 1869 and is a treasure of Champagne society. The flagship of Moët & Chandon, the Impérial Brut is the most accomplished and universal expression of its style. Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage champagnes are made from the grapes of a single exceptional year. Each Grand Vintage is unique.

Since 1842, the House has released 69 vintage champagnes and Moët possesses one of the world's most prestigious collection of vintage champagnes, all of which are safeguarded in the Grand Vintage Reserve cellars.

Moet has been associated with the sparkle of success and glamour ever since the House was founded in 1743 by Claude Moët. His grandson Jean-Remy Moët set out to conquer the market and soon transformed Moët & Chandon into an international symbol of celebration, accomplishing his lifelong goal of sharing the magic of champagne with the world. A man with a true spirit of achievement and leadership, it is to him the house owe’s its reputation as the world’s most loved champagne. The important figures of the era, from the Marquise de Pompadour to Talleyrand to Napoleon quickly fell in love with the House's effervescent wine. Moët & Chandon was soon the icon of success and elegance that it remains to this day.

The quality grapes are grown on the most extensive estates in the region. Of the 1,150 hectares of rich chalk soil, 50% are Grand Crus, and 25% are Premiers Crus. The House has access to approximately 200 of the 323 crus in the region, including a total of 17 grands crus and 32 of the 44 premiers crus. This wide-ranging diversity of fruits and vineyards ensures the optimum selection of grapes, enabling them to maintain the constancy of Moët Impérial and the originality of Grand Vintage.
