76% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay. Disgorged July 2017.
Just 10,000 bottles are produced. Just like the 2013 Blanc de Blancs, this is suddenly hitting its stride. Still terrifically fresh, with pure berries, aromatic pear and nice juicy yellow fruits that are just starting be joined with browned pastry and caramel apples. It hints at some meaty, peppery Pinot Noir evolution but stays delicate and linear. The flavour is all about Pinot, but it is pulled tight thanks to Chardonnay and the 2013 vintage. Drinking well now, but another year or two will only improve it. 17.5
