“A blend of two-thirds Chardonnay with one-third Pinot Noir, this beautifully balanced wine is poised between richness and intense crispness. Its apple and ripe pear fruits are now softening and beginning to meld into a taut texture. Roger Voss” – 93/100, Wine Enthusiast
A wonderfully fresh and expressive first impression reveals pear and peach which develops into notes of grapefruit, aniseed and liquorice.
The finely poised, the full-bodied palate remains incredibly light, with every sip revealing notes of damson and Mirabelle plum followed by orange and pink grapefruit.
Sustained by bold liveliness, the wine finishes satisfyingly with just a hint of salinity.
Pairing with food:
Can be enjoyed as an aperitif or all over the meal. It’s an ideal pairing with sea or freshwater fish (John Dory, sea bream, pikeperch etc.) and small game birds or white meat. Fresh or slightly matured goat’s cheese is also an ideal accompaniment with this vintage.
