This special blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir is only made in exceptional years from selected terroirs of old vines with limited production. These grapes are chosen for their ability to attain, after the vinification, blending, and aging, a remarkable fullness and complexity that express the year’s special character. Its bright yellow robe is full of extremely fine bubbles. The nose is full of gourmet aromas while the smooth, fleshy mouth gives it a long finish. It is worthy of being on well reputed tables during holiday celebrations!
