"A blend of 30 percent pinot noir, 40 percent meunier and 30 percent chardonnay, this contains 20 percent of reserve wine from 2014. It’s ripe and energetic in flavour, feeling multi-layered and complex, and it’s enlivened by a vibrant spine of savory minerality. This is a superb edition of this cuvée, exuberant in demeanor and sophisticated in its expression." Peter Liem
The main cuvée of the estate is Le Mont Benoit, named for the parcel in which it is grown. It’s a blend of all three varieties, although the proportions can change considerably from one year to the next, depending on the conditions of the vintage.
A portion of the blend is kept as reserve wine, and each release is generally composed of two vintages, incorporating a small portion of the previous year’s blend. While most of the wines for Le Mont Benoit go through malolactic, some of the non-malo wines that aren’t used for the vintage blends are also included in this cuvée.
