Tasted 29/09/2010: This non vintage cuvee is a blend of 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier and 33% Chardonnay. The wine pours with an excellent white creamy mousse showing good hold. Exceptionally fine bead showing excellent persistence with a pale gold base colour. The nose displays top notes of toast and good yeast autolysis characters followed by baked bread and biscuit. The palate possesses a distinct toasty character with underlying flavours of yeast lees, biscuit and brioche. Creamy texture with clean crisp balanced acidity. Long aftertaste of toast, yeast lees and brioche.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2010-2014).

Other Reviews......
A roughly equal blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier, plus 25% reserve wines; has 150 blend components, with 48 months on tirage. This is right in the heart of Pol style, crystal clear and poised, flowing evenly yet with drive and depth to its chalky/minerally/citrussy journey through to the fresh finish and lingering aftertaste.
