Most of the time, this cuvée is a blend of fifty percent chardonnay and twenty-five percent each of pinot noir and pinot meunier, and this is indeed the case with the 2010 version. The nose is still quite vibrant, but is starting to open up nicely, offering up a deep and pure constellation of apple, peach, a superb base of soil, almonds, fresh-baked bread and a gently floral topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and starting to really open up, with a rock solid core, fine soil signature, elegant mousse and a long, focused, complex and very classy finish. This is just a dynamite wine that is developing beautifully. I would be inclined to still let it sit in the cellar a few more years, so that it can completely blossom. 2018-2040.

Powerful nectarine, pear skin and lemon zest aromas are complicated by chalky minerals and white pepper. Vibrant orchard and citrus fruit flavors are given spine by tangy acidity, picking up spice and floral character with air. Powerful yet lithe and precise, finishing with excellent clarity and length and lingering chalkiness. -- Josh Raynolds
