Their vineyards, averaging 45 years old, are sustainably managed. This blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay comes from two vineyards in Bouzy, and blends the 2014 and 2015 vintage. It was fermented in stainless with no MLF, into bottle in 2016 and was disgorged in May 2022 with 0 dosage. Tight and nimble, with white and red cherry, bread dough, subtle white blossoms, and a lemon peel brace, over a stony, chalky base, finishing with lingering salinity. Nice tension throughout.Tasted: 21 August 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
