70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir
Mid-gold in colour, with a fine-beaded mousse. This blend of 70% Chardonnay with 30% Pinot Noir is already over fifteen years old yet it's still in a phase of early maturity, with scents of early-picked summer fruits and autumn apple-lent richness and charm with bread and sweet honeycomb. The palate is still taut, deep, searching and long. It's built around a core of resonant, suggestive acidity in which the aromatic fruits remain fresh, poised and youthful; the finish is long and bracing. There's a flavoury otherness on the finish which suggests fine powdery chalk. DRINK 2018-2026
