Weather: 

2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall

and a few weeks of high temperatures,

a very solid vintage with good ripeness and acidity.

 Flowering began in June and summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells.

 Some regions saw some disease and Meunier in the Marne Valley didn’t have a great year and

some of the Pinot Noir with its thinner skin made it more difficult for the red grapes.

 Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September.

 A year where it was necessary to select the red grapes carefully to maintain high quality.

 In general Chardonnay is the star of the vintage.

 

Tasting Notes : 

Tinted with golden glints. A precise and fruity nose with a slight scent of sea-air.

 Aromas of cherry and lemon mingle with quince and bergamot.

 Then notes of hazelnut and almond, peach and mirabelle plum complete

this wine’s range of aromas.

 On the palate, The initial sensation is a fine and intense effervescence,

followed by a wonderful vinosity, and

then balanced with delicate acidity.

 Its very fine texture and sea-air finish bring excellent length

on the palate, accompanied by a delicate minerality and

the complex flavours of orchard fruit and citrus.
