Plush and silky thanks to 10 years of ageing on lees, it is a perfect accompaniment for grilled red mullet, a salmon tartar with citrus and fresh figs, or even just a not too-ripe Epoisses cheese.
Colour: A sublime soft pink robe
Aroma: The initial nose is saline and mineral, underlined by a hint of toast and smoke. Notes of citrus, pink grapefruit, blood orange and red current gradually follow. A discreet fruitiness with more intense notes will be unveiled with time: Morello cherries, liquorice and black tea.
Palate: The exuberant mouthfeel is cubic with the typical vivacity of the vintage. The finish is long and creamy, with extremely delicate effervescence at the very end. It is paradoxical to find a wine of such great freshness paired with a structure of such restrained power.
Grape Varieties: 70% Pinot Noir & 30% Chardonnay
Awards: Silver – International Wine Challenge 2019; 96pts – Wine Enthusiast; 93pts – Decanter
