A very small production from 1 hectare of Chardonnay in the Marne Valley where the soil is mainly clay rather than chalk giving the wine a generous mouthfeel. Stainless steel and full malolactic fermentation. Aromatic and complex on the nose. Floral and elegant with a rich, creamy core and a long, persistent finish.
"100% Chardonnay. Dosage 9 g/l. 36 months sur latte.
Cream and apples, cinnamon and nutmeg spices, shortbread underlay. Gentle broad sweep through the mouth leaving a tiny trace of bitterness, the kind you get when chewing on rocket flowers and lemon pith. The finish, though, is back to cream. Drink 2021 2027."
16.5 / 20 points.
