Classic Cuvée (2014 base) is composed of between 50-60% Chardonnay, 30-40% Pinot Noir and 10-20% Pinot Meunier, with reserve wines forming 25-30% of the blend. There is a crystalline clarity to this wine – a quiet purity that is perhaps easy to overlook. Subtle lemon tart, sweet raspberries and honeysuckle with gentle white peach notes and subtle yellow citrus on the close. A true assemblage, where nothing dominates. This sets the tone for the whole range in not being led by acid; it just plays delightfully with delicate, sweet autolytic notes and deep-running freshness. The 2014-based iteration is such a settled, unflappable wine.
