Winemaking

Traditional Method. Whole bunch pressed, only the cuvée used (512.5L/t). Primary fermentation in stainless steel before bottling and secondary fermentation in bottle for three years on lees.

Assemblage:  47% 2018 chardonnay, 44% 2018 pinot noir, 9% reserve wine (2012 vintage - 5% chardonnay, 4% pinot noir).

 

Tasting Note


From the classic 2018 vintage, this is a wine of great delicacy and finesse. A fine, dry aperitif style, the
extended time on lees imparts wonderful complexity and texture. Pure, with incredible line and length, the
wine has a poised, lingering finish.
