With a little almond, smoke and a hint of Quince on the nose, this is rather gentle. Emerging top notes of flowers and a nice, fresh yeastiness. Bright on entry with fine acidity backed up by a lot of fresh fruit. Crisp and clean. Very finely focused, as well as lively and elegant on the fairly long finish, which shows a hint of orange cream. 89pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe, healthy fruit was hand-picked into small totes, and then whole-cluster pressed. Half of the juice was fermented in French Oak barrels (30% new) to create a round, rich texture. The other half was fermented and aged in stainless steel to maintain the purest and most elegant expression of Chardonnay. After eight months, these two styles were blended to create a cuvée of a more delicate nature - to Véronique, it is as if one brought together elements of a pure Chablis and a gentle Meursault.
