100% Chardonnay. 2008 base vintage; 15% reserve wines. All estate, grand cru fruit (seventeen hectares!) from Cramant. Raised in stainless steel. Dosage: 6 g/l. Aged minimum 36 months on the lees.
White-gold. Estery and assertive: hedgeflowers to a chalky backdrop up front. Pencil lead and stone fruit to follow. Fine autolytic character. Extract-rich fabric of quince and mirabelle. The finish is old-school white farmer fizz, a minerality so incisive it sizzles. Classic Cramant; it allies matière with finesse. Now – 2018+.
