Grand Cru Royal Vintage 2009
Made from seven of the House’s emblematic grands crus, Pommery Grand Cru Royal Vintage 2009 is steeped in history by the nobility of its origins. In equal proportions, the Chardonnays of the Côte des Blancs enter into synergy with the great Pinots Noirs of the Montagne de Reims: two exceptional terroirs at the service of an outstanding cuvée. In the pure line of the great vintages of the House, Champagne Pommery signs with Grand Cru 2009 a precise, fine and intense vintage.
Pale gold color with delicate golden nuances, signs of elegance and maturity. Exceptional shine. Effervescence of great finesse.
The first nose is remarkably elegant, discreet and very fresh. The first notes are floral and sweet, reminiscent of honeysuckle and acacia flower. As it opens, the wine reveals fruitier nuances of dried fig but also of frangipane. The Pinot Noir asserts itself after a few seconds with aromas of violet and blueberry.
The structure of the wine, velvety, reminds the chalk of Champagne. Very straight and with an exceptional minerality. The balance is perfect. Notes of lime blossom and slivered almonds intermingle with the fig aromas detected on the nose. A sign of great maturity after more than twelve years of cellar aging, nuances of toast bring complexity to this vintage. The finish is in perfect balance between tension and greed through a dash of pink grapefruit.
A gastronomic wine par excellence, it is the ideal partner for many dishes. With its structure and natural freshness, it will magnify rich dishes such as foie gras or white meat in sauce. At the end of the meal, it will be perfectly associated with a Comté cheese of 18 months of maturing.
