2016 base with 20% 2015. 85% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier from Villers-Allerand. 50% Barrel fermented.

Maillart’s wines retain clarity and succulence despite the breadth and richness of the fruit. Bay, orange zest and sweet, woody honey notes over dried peach sweetness and apple turnover. A spot of fresh, delicate raspberry too. It is punchy but fresh, delivered with some silkiness and refinement – so hard for blanc de noirs. 2016s do seem to hold more clarity of flavour than many 2015s for the black grapes. 16.5
