100% Chardonnay from grand cru vineyards in Mesnil, Oger, Avize and Cremant. Base 2008 vintage with 10% reserve wines. Raised in iron vats. Aged three+ years on the lees. Unknown dosage and disgorgement.
Pale straw-gold. Forthcoming, lustrous, spherical: white tea, jasmine, key-lime. Well-made; of sound equilibrium and substance. Chalk-dusted finish. A comely Côte des Blancs. But that’s about it. Too anodyne for farmer-fizz; we would prefer a lower dosage. For drinking soon.
