A very complex, rich nose revealing hints of fresh ginger, stone fruit and almond. In the mouth it is lightly creamy with good tightness and a suggestion of brioche. A floral touch testifies to the high proportion of Chardonnay while the depth of the Pinot Noir is expressed in the form of red fruits and appealing bitter notes.
Made with 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay,
