2009 has been one of the best year in Champagne, for more than 30 years. The high quality of health conditions and the optimum maturity led to the desired balance of Champagne PAUL GOERG and ensured promising champagnes.
The perfect balance between the average alcohol degree (10%) and the very satistfying acidity was the sign of an high quality vintage after a long time of ageing in the cellars.
Warmest conditions since 2003, optimal maturity, healthy fruit. Balanced wines with average sugars, lower acidities. High overall maturity. Vintage year for some, principally récoltants-manipulants (individual growers). In ’09, new EU rules reduced dosage for Brut to 12 g/l.
