x close This wine is still young, with extreme freshness from the low dosage. However, all elements are there for a great future for this taut, citrus and kiwi-flavored wine. The tense structure will soften and fill out. Drink this vintage from 2021.

IDENTITY

The “Assemblage” 2009 vintage, was made exclusively from first pressings – the purest – of grapes sourced from 10 of the best terroirs in the heart of Champagne. An equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, of which 20% was barrel fermented, this vintage has been maturing for seven on lees,, developing complex notes of sweet spices and candied fruits, enhanced by a persistent vivacity.

THE 2009 VINTAGE

After a crisp and windy winter with alternating spells of rain and snow, the spring and early summer started out rather moodily with thunder and hail storms. Luckily, the old saying ‘August makes the must’ came true again as the warm weather and dry heat returned, allowing for exceptional maturity, while spring showers preserved the water reserve preventing hydric stress. The harvest started early with the Oger and Mesnil Chardonnay on 10th September and carried on for 10 days as Mailly Pinot were picked last. The acidity is in line with the last 10 vintage campaigns with a greater maturity.

DOSAGE

Like the rest of our wines, the 2009 Assemblage is an extra brut with very low dosage of 5 grams/ litre. The wine was disgorged in September 2017 after which it convalesced another 18 months before being released.

THE ARTIST

To illustrate the atypical vintage, the Maison commissioned Swedish artist Anna-Lisa Unkuri to work on the theme « Invitation au Voyage ». Though marked by the distinctive BP liveliness, the 2009 assemblage has a solar generosity and fragrances reminiscent of exotic foreign lands. Anna-Lisa Unkuri’s work surrounds the spectator with a unique oneiric atmosphere. To her, traveling – whether physical or through one’s memory – is to be experienced with joy and a desire to wonder.

TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Bright gold with lively and elegant effervescence.
Nose: Confected dried fruits followed intense black fruits and notes of citrus, kumquat, acacia honey.
Palate: Rich and creamy with delicate hints of sweet spices and roasted nuts softened by the patina of time, balanced by a lingering acidity.
