Made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from Premier Cru designated vineyards, it pours with a fine creamy white mousse which dissipates quickly to reveal a pale straw coloured base wine. The very fine bead showing excellent persistence. Displaying excellent intensity the nose is quite rich and full for a Blanc de Blancs with lifted aromas of pear dominate over subtle baked fruit characters. Overlaying these are yeast lees and toast followed by citrus end notes. Refined yet mouthfilling flavours of pears, citrus, baked bread characters and yeast lees flow across the palate with some brioche also present. Rich and full with excellent concentration and a moderately creamy textural feel it finishes dry with fresh acidity. Long rich aftertaste of baked bread, yeast lees, oily cashew and toast. An excellent fuller styled Blanc de Blanc.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
