60% Meunier, 40% Chardonnay from Festigny in the Vallée de la Marne. Raised in enamel-lined iron-vats. No malolactic fermentation. Aged three+ years on its lees. Disgorgement: December 2013. Dosage: 6/l.
Deeper in pitch than the ‘Les Sources du Flagot’: yellow-gold. Finer and more spherical: softer clay soils and less marked by the acidity. A more discreet autolysis. Still lusty and flavorsome, with a bit more definition texturally: toasted-rye and curry-spice, pomelo-blossom, quince. Affirming, mineralic finish. Will still improve. From 2016.
