Elegant, classy and complex with a gorgeous saline character followed by lemon zest, floral and hints of vanilla and light toast. Remarkable balance of fruit and acidly that gets support from the beautiful fine mousse. All the components work in harmony leaving your palate watering, forcing you in for another taste. The blend of 70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir was aged for 5 years on lees. (Dosage:5, grapes from 2008/2009). (Best 2013-2025) –May, 2013 (JD)
