This is 80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay, all fermented in wood, 60% new. Drink now.

After resting...   Splendid nose with an interplay of smoke, hazelnut and gentle spices, along with a touch that is reminiscent of the salty tang of a sea breeze, but what is especially captivating is the elegant floral scent. After resting a while in the glass, the wine develops nuanced notes of menthol. The mouthfeel is remarkably fleshy but also has an underlying chalky texture that seems almost tannic on the superb, emotionally satisfying finish. The oak influence is subtle and surprisingly elegant. Excellent potential for improving with age. 100% Aÿ. 70% base wine from 2015 vintage, 30% reserve wines. 20% Chardonnay, 80% Pinot Noir. Dosage 6g/L, disgorged March 2020. Drinking Window 2025 - 2040
