Very attractive in youth, however will mature gracefully.
Seven months in French oak sur lie.
Pristine Chardonnay fruit and respectful winemaking. Fermentation and maturation in mainly seasoned French oak (only 5% new), adds complexity and generosity of texture without comprising the purity of the aromatics or flavour.
A long and gentle vintage weather pattern, slightly cooler than the long-term average. The fruit gained lovely perfumes and textures while maintaining a magnificent verve.
