The youngest rendition of Première Cuvée that I tasted on my visit to the maison in late March is comprised of twenty percent barrel-fermented base wines this year and carries a dosage of six grams per liter. The wine is young, but very promising and shows a nice influence from its pinot meunier constituent in its complex bouquet of apple, tart orange, a very complex base of soil tones, meunier-induced, gentle floral tones, warm bread and a dollop of smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with excellent mid-palate intensity, elegant mousse, excellent focus and a very long, well-balanced and primary finish. This is going to be excellent (and is already very tasty), but I would be strongly inclined to give it a couple of years, as there are layers of complexity still to unlock with bottle age (as the subsequent examples so graphically illustrated). 2014-2040+.

Taut and sharply focused, with very good clarity and a refreshing mineral bite on the back half. Quite tensile but not at all hard-edged. Closes tangy and long, with lingering orange pith and white pepper qualities. -- Josh Raynolds
