VINIFICATION, BLENDING AND AGEING
Blending of vintage years 2006 (65%), 2004 (20%), 2002 (15%)
- 2006: a hot July followed by a cool, wet August brought finesse and elegance to the wines. The Chardonnays reveal notes of white fruit, citrus and white flowers and the Pinots Noirs, notes of red fruit and cherry.
- 2004: despite a mixed summer, September’s warmth and dryness produced well-structured wines with good length, with Chardonnays showing notes of citrus and acacia flowers and fruity Pinots Noirs.
- 2002: the harvest took place in September with sunny weather for ideal ripening of the grapes. The wines are fresh, elegant and complex. The Chardonnays have notes of white fruit and the Pinots Noirs, red fruit aromas.

Intense pale yellow colour with highlights evoking the freshness of spring. An intense nose with mixed aromas of candied citrus fruit, honey, summer flowers and a few toasted notes. The soft attack on the palate coats it with the sensation of silkiness. The finish has the freshness of candied citrus fruit bringing with it length and tension.
