Brut Millésime 2009 is a very fine champagne with a mature, powerful, complex character. It also presents outstanding elegance and finesse. Pale yellow in colour, its fine bubbles generate a generous ring of foam. The nose offers a mellow fruitiness with white and yellow fleshed fruit such as William pear, greengages and mirabelle plums. This is followed by notes of white flowers and dried fruit. On the palate, the attack is fresh, rich, mature and generous. The mid-palate is dominated by fruit in syrup, followed by slightly honeyed notes on the finish.
A complex nose showing notes of black cherry, plum, violets, coffee and raisins. The palate is smooth and rounded, with a richly-textured mid-palate and a medley of spice, dried fruit characters and supple tannins. The wine remains elegant, being so beautifully integrated and sweetly rich, but with a long and complex, dry finish.
