Initially subtle, it slowly reveals its melodious and endless sensuality.
Aromas of green apple, pear, citrus fruits, peach and apricot, carried by a life-giving breath, iodized and mentholated, signatures of the Chardonnay, exclusive varietal of the cuvée carefully harvested by hand in 2011 (60%), 2010 et 2009.
Later, the joyful maturity is unveiled with its warm scents of honey and beeswax, thanks to the patient ageing on laths of the bottles (3 years), before disgorgement.
Lively and dense attack, result of the rigorous selection of the first juices (cuvée), purer, during the soft pressing of the grapes, but also particularly of the timely stop of the malolactic fermentation of the base wines.

Radiant and impressive finish.
Impressive length on the palate.
