40% Pinot Noir; 40% Pinot Meunier; 20% Chardonnay. From premier cru vineyards in Montagne de Reims (Ludes, Chigny-les-Roses and Villers-Allerande). Full malolactic fermentation. Aged four years on the lees, another 6 months after disgorment. Dosage: 9 g/l. This is Lot # L. 41. 2008 base vintage. 2014 release.
Yellow-gold. Barkier and crustier than the Rosé, more fruit than berry, a coppery apricot. Textural and pillowy and the finish is iodé, a walk on the ocean blue. Now.
