    Smoked Salmon on Cucumber Rounds

Vintage 1998

IN THE GLASS:
Shimmering gold colours.

ON THE NOSE:
The nose is immediately powerful and concentrated, rapidly delivering its sophisticated aromas of honey, dried fruit (Corinth grapes, (grilled) almond and hazelnut) and stewed fruit (apple) combined with sweet and spicy notes (vanilla and cinnamon).

ON THE PALATE:
The rounded and sophisticated palate retains a surprising freshness and as it warms, it releases notes of undergrowth and mushrooms, revealing the wine’s “radiant” character, between abundance and fullness. The reasoning behind the “under-dosage” is clear here, allowing the purest expression of the wine.

FOOD MATCHES:
Enjoy in autumn and winter, around the hearth; spend an afternoon savouring its beauty and fabulous flavours. At the table, its place is undisputed: accompanying red or dark meat, such as duck breast with blueberries, or a side of beef with wild mushrooms…

Assemblage :
Chardonnay 64 %,
Pinot Noir 36 %

Dosage : Extra brut (3,5 g/L)
Serve : between 8° and 10°
Cellar : Seven years and more

without malo-lactic fermentation

To preserve the natural fruitiness of the wines, malo-lactic fermentation is carefully avoided.

Written Notes

A rich, ripe and concentrated nose of fruits. Classic charm and unique charisma of a small producer. An open and generous nose, with cinnamon, spices and red berries. A charming wine that is now very enjoyable.
