70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from 11.7 h/a estate vineyards in Gyé-Sur-Seine.  2012 vintage.  100% malo.  Aging: 48 months.  Disgorged: July 2015.  Dosage: 7.15 g/l.  This bottle is from Lot No. 0715.

White-gold.  Sappy and bright.  Blackberry-copper-saline and the Chardonnay brings out the Kimmeridgian terroir.  Oyster-shell with length and a lemony splash at the end.  Now – 2022+.
