A blend of 40% Chardonnay from several grands cru sites, plus 30% Pinot Noir and 30% Pinot Meunier. The base wine is 2014, supported by 40% grand cru Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reserve wine from 2012 and 2013. It is 100% vinified in stainless steel tanks before undergoing malolactic fermentation, with a final dosage of 9g/l. It has a pale salmon hue and a fine mousse, with a firm nose of ripe red fruit and citrus zest. The palate is round but elegant, boasting a fresh acid structure to balance the creamy apple and bold redcurrant fruit. Drink 2018-2023.
