Gold medal prize: -Sélections Mondiales des Vins in Canada 2019.
Proof indeed of a hot, generous vintage, the 2009 Vintage Brut releases a great flourish of energy from within its deep, intense structure, which is adorned with sumptuous yellow fruits. Intensely ripe and fruity notes of Mirabelle plums and honeyed apricots, meld seamlessly with a hint of pastry and mint, which only adds to the freshness. Perfectly formed and harmonious, the aromas develop and linger. This is a Champagne of majestic balance, underpinned by appealing character on the palate, which acquires the intensity and power of the pinots, together with the subtlety and freshness of chardonnay. An unconditional delicacy. The 2009 Collection Vintage Brut is an exemplary Champagne to serve with food; think poultry, delicately-flavoured, ubtly-spiced fish or a yellow stone-fruit summer salad.
