The colour is a honey gold yellow.The aromas are decidedly winey and full. It explodes with hints of wheat and chalk. The mouth immediately gives stone fruits, the whole is fresh with a full-bodied consistency that holds together.The palateis bolstered by a fine acidity and a balance between creamy and bold. And as seen in both the tightness and mouthfeel, it bears the signature of the entire House line. A solid structure with a fine future ahead of it –between the mild smoothness of Meunier and the directness of Pinot Noir. A fine balance of aroma, taste and long finish.
