Cépage is half Chardonnay, half Meunier, blending the 2006 and 2007 harvests. From 40+ year old vines in Pierry. Dosage: 2 g/l. Unknown disgorgement. Organic since 1999.
Yellow-gold; a couple ticks deeper in pitch than the ‘Cuvée de la Terre’. Fullish with a tilt towards gras: quite an achievement for an Extra! Estery, in a gently-oxidative style. Sauvage with a swollen, pumpernickel savor. Then granular and unadorned, it finishes in redolent earth and graceful, mineralic detail. A Pierry of both flair and depth. Now – 2017+.
