50% Chardonnay (Cramant, Avize, Chouilly and Mesnil/Oger); 45% PN (Aÿ, Ambonnay, Bouzy, Mailly, Verzy and Vernezay) and 5% Meunier (Dizy, Hautvillers, Venteuil and Vincelles).
Golden color with some amber. Mature, organic, waxy nose: baked raisin bread, walnut honey, well oiled orchard fruit and earth. Sparse but fine bead. Soft mousse. Middle weight palate has some nice caramel richness, decent acidity and a toffee-cream-apple skin finish of good length. A stately grande dame of a wine. For drinking soon.
