Tasting Notes: Produced with a little over half of the blend using chardonnay, the wine is exceptionally well focused, with a bright core. Pinot noir makes up the balance, adding weight, an elegant character and lovely red fruit aspects on the nose and palate. The finish is long and lingering. Brought into the American market only once every ten years, the wine does not need a special occasion to open. Opening a bottle, and enjoying its world-class quality and character, creates a special occasion, all by itself.
