‘This is a 50/50 blend of pinot noir and chardonnay. Immediately powerful and intense yet with an ethereal lightness of touch. A beautifully crafted wine of great length and power. Minerally and chalky. First pressings from grand cru vineyards.’
Light straw colour, with a faint trace of copper. The bouquet is fresh and clean, smelling of nougat, vanilla ice-cream and meringue. There are attractive, subtle touches of yeast autolysis character. The palate is soft and smooth, nicely modulated and finishing clean and fairly dry but still soft and creamy. The acidity is refreshing. It's drier and more crisp on the finish than I remember this wine. Very good aperitif style.
