Champagne gold color with slightly copper tints. Energetic and dazzling effervescence.
A ravishing bouquet: complex, generous and deep, dominated by red fruits (raspberry) and orchard fruits (nectarines, golden plums), a certain smokiness (hazelnuts and toasted almonds) and a hint of sun-warmed pebbles.
The immediate impression is velvety, creamy and elegant on the palate with a mineral freshness and vertical structure very typical of Pinots noirs from Verzenay. A deep, robust and complex juice where the fruit’s sun-drenched richness is counterbalanced by the salty freshness of the terroir.
The ageing potential for this fabulous year 2009 is very high.
Blend: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
