Following several vintages in which Chardonnay was dominant, Pinot Noir has taken the spotlight in the Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 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 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.
