"On the sweet side, yet there's an interesting array of flavors. Graphite, candied berry, hazelnut and honey tones get a lift from the acidity. Drink now." (WS)

"Light gold. Bright orange, candied lemon and peach on the nose, with a faint toffee note. Broad pear and peach flavors, with deeper notes of marzipan and guava. Plenty sweet but also balanced and clean, with good weight and a long, lush finish. For the style, this is delicious." (VM)

Winery Notes:
The assemblage reflects the diversity and complementarity of the three grape varietals:
The structure of Pinot Noir: 40 to 50%

The fleshiness Pinot Meunier : 30 to 40%

The freshness of Chardonnay : 10 to 20%

of which 20 to 30% from specially selected reserve wines to enhance its intensity, richness and constancy.
