60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. This millésime was composed of 11 crus, including the vineyards that form the cornerstones of the house style: Oger, Avize, Vertus and Cramant for Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir from Mailly and Ambonnay.
After the first fermentation the wines were racked to separate the lees and underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. After blending, the cuvée was bottled and yeast added for the second fermentation. The bottles were cellared and remained ageing on lees for 8 years. After disgorgement and dosage it was aged a further 6 months before release.
Golden in appearance; the aromas are autumnal and warm with notes of praline and lightly toasted hazelnuts. The palate is rich, as would be expected from a warm and generous vintage, with intense notes of dried apricots, dates and figs. Full bodied and layered, and lasting on the finish.
