Disgorged in the summer of 2016. Because of the hot growing season of 2007, this is a blend of 55% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Bianco and 20% Pinot Noir from the best cru. These include the 20 vineyards of Chardonnay with vines that have an average age of 35 years, two vineyards of Pinot Bianco with an average age of 24 years and six vineyards of Pinot Noir with vines that are on an average 30 years old. After fermenting in small oak casks for at least six months, with malolactic fermentation taking place, the wine ages on the lees for eight years, five months. Disgorgement takes place in the absence of oxygen to avoid the wine suffering any oxidative shock and limit the use of sulfur, which in the end is less than 48mg/l, or less than a third of the allowed amount.
In the glass, the wine has a bright golden color with platinum reflections. The bouquet is very fresh with a lovely fragrance with citrus notes of citron and bergamot and those of elder, verbena and lemon balm together with sensations of iodine and chalk all on a rich background of fresh almond and crunchy walnut. The mouthfeel is dynamic and vibrant with distinct fruit flavors, a refined elegance and a defined and punctual saline tension. This all comes together harmoniously in a spontaneously refreshing finish.
