Millésime 2009

Tasting Notes, Assemblage, and Serving Suggestions

A Prefatory Note on the Special Cuvée

Our flagship champagne, this brut Millésime 2009 is produced from chardonnay and pinot noir varietals. Carefully guarded and aged sur lie (conditioning in bottle on sediments) since 2009 until disgorgement in Summer 2017, this vintage is the soul of the producer and importer alike. Serve this enduring champagne with oysters, haddock, and/or special moments. Exceptional terroir and finesse define this characteristic Côte de Sézanne.


Tasting Notes

A classic dry vintage French champagne. Primarily characterized by its enduring flavors and tertiary notes resulting from the increased aging and passion of the vintner, powerful enough to pair excellently with seafood. Beautiful sunlit honey aura. White flower and citrus floral on the nose, hint of pear.


Medium bodied, yeastiness flavors beginning with a well balanced acidity giving a nice lift. Citrus flavors. Marzipan, toast, and almond tertiary notes to finish. Vibrant, formal, and fine bubble structure lends to refined mousse texture.


Assemblage 

  • 50% Chardonnay/50% Pinot Noir 
  • Acidity 2g/l; Dosage 8.4g/l; Residual Sugar 3.9g/l

Serving Suggestions

Convenient for aperitif, au cours du repas, and dessert. Particularly well-paired with oysters and cold-water white fish. A rare cuvée for celebrating special moments. Best enjoyed at 50°F.
