Tasting Notes

TO THE EYE: PEARL PINK
Coppery, almost blue glints merge to give a soft hue of pink quartz. As exquisite as the petals of old roses, elegant bubbles dance in the glass.

ON THE NOSE: SPRINGLIKE AND COMPLEX
The initial nose offers a bouquet of spring flowers. This fragrant elegance quickly increases in complexity and texture. Notes of tangerine, lychee and verbena alternate with hints of syrupy elderberry, of sweet almonds. Freshly picked dark crisp fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry, lingonberry), the nose is generous, heralding a vintage with exceptional potential.

ON THE PALATE: SUBTLE AND MINERAL
Following an attack that is both elegant and generous, the velvety texture unfurls to offer minerality and subtlety. Initially, the exuberant vitality of dark fruits and of citrus is followed by the vibrancy, smoky notes and aromas of star anise and violets. Then the triumphant delicacy expresses a hint of vanilla.

  • Prawn risotto.
  • Braised Black Angus
  • Roast lamp chops
  • Stewed or roasted pigeon
  • Lightly grilled red mullet
  • Grilled lobster
  • Mozzarella di buffala

WEATHER: UNPREDICTABLE
After a mild winter, a dreary spring, a significantly cool summer, the ominous and extremely rainy weather became sunny, dry and almost cold, lasting throughout the harvest.

  • 56% Chardonnay
  • 44% Pinot Noir
