70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir
Age pays dividends in Champagne, and this thirteen-year-old is just slipping into the comely grace and affability which the years bring to blends based on top-quality raw materials. Chardonnay is dominant here (70%) with the balance coming from Pinot Noir alone. Pale saffron gold in colour with a fine, sustained mousse, the wine combines enticing scents of dried fruits and orange peel with a back note of walnut butter. The palate is now open, supple, round-contoured and complete, the acidity time-mellowed, the notes of ground stone, white peach and dark nuts harmonious and mellow, subsiding gently in the mouth. Unintimidating but quietly grand.
