This is a dry, rich and creamy vintage Champagne produced by Baron-Fuenté produced with Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir wine grapes sourced from the banks of the Marne Rivers. Grand Millésime is a Brut Vintage (2009) Champagne with a toasty, creamy mousse with ripe pear, peach, vibrant citrus flavours lingering on the palate with clean mineral notes. Chill and enjoy on its own and a perfect pairing with raw oysters.
Champagne food pairings: fried chicken, smoked salmon, toasted baguette and creamy cheeses.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Baron Fuente's Grand Millesime 2009 is from estate operated vineyards around Charly sur Marne; the southwestern portion of the Champagne district. 2009 was an incredible year for ripeness in the wine and it is evident here.
This wine has some nice classic aromas of candied pineapple, green apple, pastry dough, and honeysuckle florality. This vintage was predominantly Chardonnay, with Pinot Meunier in second, and Pinot Noir filling out the tiniest portion of the blend.
The flavours are a bit softer than the nose. Cider apple, honey, flakey pastry, and a decently aggressive mousse to the bubbles.
This could last another half decade woth no problem. It would be interesting to buy a few and follow its evolution... Or pair it tonight with a lobster roll and die cut fries.
|Baron-Fuenté Grand Millésime is a Brut Vintage (2009) Champagne with a toasty, creamy mousse, and crisp, citrus and mineral flavours lingering on the palate. Chill and enjoy on its own, but has great acidity for food. Pair with oysters on the half-shell. Enjoy now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews|
