Vintage 2008

Grand cru

Blend: 50% Pinot Noir, 50% Chardonnay
Reserve wines: none
Vinification: Temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats
Dosage: 8g/L
Aging: 8 years minimum in cellar

Eye: A very rich foam appears when the wine is served. The lively effervescence builds a thin necklace inside the glass. The wine offers a clear, shiny golden colour.
Nose: The first nose is very expressive and mature, opening on dried fruit aromas. Upon aeration, cinnamon notes appear, while the finish lingers on a hint of slightly candied yellow-fleshed fruit.
Palate: The wine is incredibly fresh, generous and expressive, revealing mirabelle plum and mango aromas, with a hint of cinnamon. The nicely balanced dosage complements a very long finish.

Snails with parsley sauce

Veal cutlet with creamy sauce
