65% Pinot Noir, 35% Chardonnay, all Grand Cru. Fully oak fermented, with 6 years on lees. This has the ‘mini magnum’ neck – slimmer to cut down on the oxygen ingress.

This is arresting stuff, although it is a little more developed than I was expecting with maple and pecan, roasted apple and a supporting candied citrus intensity. Rich hazelnut and a front-loaded shape. I wonder whether this bottle is absolutely at 100%, or whether it is slightly over-evolved? Powerful but not quite an enlivening as it could be. 17
