Tasting Notes

2008: a very rich year, producing grapes of exceptional maturity. The cool summer nights ensured that the vintage was harvested in normal conditions and retained a good acidity to enhance the wine. The pinot noir and the chardonnay contribute to the velvetiness and the finesse of the wine. Full-bodied and harmonious, the taste grows on the palate, developing light buttery notes with a very pleasant fine mousse to support it. An exceptional wine.

Serving suggestions

With its good vinosity and full flavour, this is the ideal wine to serve with fatty fish starters or poultry terrines; it is also perfect as an aperitif. Serve at 8?C (46°F).
