From the good 2009 vintage, this stunning vintage Champagne has a light, appealing pale bright yellow with, green reflections and 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. Drink now - 2030.
This vintage Champagne is shipped in a deluxe wooden presentation box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine thermometer) [worth £17.99] at no extra cost and now includes a free gift card with your personal message and tasting and storage notes.
