The most successful grape in the 2009 harvest, Pinot Noir dominates the blend at 50% and gives it its power. Chardonnay brings elegant freshness and smoothness (36%), while Meunier enhances this great vintage with its full-bodied texture.
A PALE AND LUMINOUS APPEARANCE
Bright pale yellow with green glints, and fine and persistent bubbles.
Its maturity asserts itself right from the start. The first clues are soft, with cut hay, marzipan or vanilla gradually opening up to a more toasted register: roasted sesame, toasted almonds, mocha. Then fleshy and juicy fruit calls to mind an orchard of peaches and apricots in the midsummer. Suggestions of roses and peonies in bouquets complete this wonderfully delicate ensemble.
A DISTINGUISHED PALATE
Full and smooth, the first contact envelops the palate. Then the silky and fluid texture unfolds. The controlled power of Pinot Noir with notes of honey and sweet spices, is underscored by a hint of pink grapefruit. The whole package is both generous and light.
