Cuvée Michelle Moreau 2014 (70% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier) sees Chardonnay in charge with this breezy elderflower and meadow character, raw lemon and light floral honey and shortbread. There’s a trademark vein of this wild, slightly oxidative apple tang through the palate with lovely bright yellow grapefruit and a characteristic terseness on the close. Still not convinced these are developing properly post-disgorgement. Possible low sulphur or too much oxygen ingress. They should be fresher.
