Pinot Noir , ChardonnayRegion:
Its vinification, partially in traditional oak casks, underpins the generous character of this fine, elegant and rich wine.
A lovely colour of sparkling yellow gold veiled in luminous golden reflections.
There is a balanced tension controlled by the blossoming of the wine (seeded and stone fruit, citrus fruit, warm madeleines) and embodied by the line of noble resinous flavours (spruce and juniper berries from Houlle).
Fine malted notes associated with orchard fruit (white peach, nectarine, Lorraine plum) refined by the purity of the complex mandarin zest aromas.
98 - JAMES SUCKLING
"Very impressive depth and detail here. The freshness is staggering. Citrus and grilled hazelnut aromas lead to a palate that has a very concentrated, slightly creamy and taut feel. Super long and dense with lemon curd, white peaches and a toasty build to the finish. Superb! Drink or hold."
