Grapes:  Predominanty Chardonnay with 20-25% each of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.  Non-vintage wine based on the 2014 harvest

 

Tasting Notes:  The nose remains young and beautifully precise, delivering scents of apple, pear, lovely floral tones, chalky minerality, elegant nuttiness, and a bit of buttery oak from its elevage in foudres.  On the palate, the wine is deep, full-bodied and zesty, with superb mid-palate density, lovely mineral drive, refined mousse, and an excellent girdle of acidity to carry it far into the future.
