2006 had very distinctively marked seasons. During winter, frost reached -17° celsius in the Montagne de Reims. Spring was cooler than usual and fortunately without frost, allowing a good budding. Warm temperatures only arrived June 10th and almost immediately, from June 15th, flowering started in perfect conditions. In August, temperatures dropped severely, together with unusually abundant rainfall, bringing risk to the harvest. The return of sun in September saved the vintage, which started the 16th for the Chardonnays. An abundant vintage, which allowed and required severe grape selection.
Chardonnay was the clear winner of this year and it is encapsulated perfectly in this vintage wine. An intense and bright green-gold colour with aromas of citrus dominated scents and almond. Leave it to open up after a few minutes and a fragrance of candied orange zest will come through.
Fresh and generous palate, with minerality and a harmonious balance of elegance.
“Mouth both powerful and delicate, it provided a salivating final. An elegant Blanc de Blancs…”
