The latest release of this wine is a blend of 30% Chardonnay, 35% Pinot Noir and 35% Pinot Meunier. Being non-vintage it includes wines from various vintages, but about 75% of it is from 2011 with the other 25% being reserve wine (ie older stock), which gives it that extra bit of complexity and power. About 18% of the wine saw time in barrel on lees (higher than the previous release) and the dosage is 5 g/l making it a dry style.
“An impeccably crafted wine from noble fruit sources, offering sensational value for money. A compelling harmony between fruit intensity of grapefruit, red cherry, golden delicious apple and white peach, the biscuit, honeyed appeal of bottle age and a touch of oak, and a well-focused malic acid line. Low dosage sits comfortably on the midst of impeccably ripe fruit. A cuvee of class that transcends its difficult base vintage and its refreshing affordable price, declaring integrity in accurate palate line and impressive persistence”. 93 points, Tyson Stelzer. A score which puts it not only up with, but ahead of, many of the big names.
“Light yellow-gold. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe tangerine, peach, honey and white flowers, with a slow-building vanilla nuance. Pliant and expansive, offering juicy, spice-accented citrus and pit fruit flavoors and a touch of buttered toast. Finishes sappy and long, with lingering floral, spice and creme brulee notes” 91 points Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar.
