I drank this Chardonnay  with my partner.
Very light flavour. Yeasty smell. Light wine, more than expected.
I'd like to try it with a carpaccio.

Reviews of other vintages of Moet & Chandon Grand Vintage 201220082009

4/5

- Bright pale yellow with glimmers of green. Fine, dynamic bead.
- Initial floral notes of linden, honeysuckle and acacia with citrus nuances evocative of bergamot and mandarin orange zest along with a dash of anise and green tomato. Following are notes of just-ripe stone fruits - white peach, nectarine and Mirabelle plums.
- The bouquet is completed by gentle scents of pastry, brioche, frangipane, almonds and vanilla with a slight hint of white pepper.
- This vintage is vivacious and lively. The underlying acidity orients the linear, focused palate; the tautness is enveloped and channelled by the texture of succulent notes of white fruits which envelop and channel the freshness toward a vibrant, mouth-watering finish with a lingering note of citrus fruit.
- Chardonnay 40%, Pinot Noir 37%, Pinot Meunier 23%.
