Region: France, Champagne-Ay.
Grape: 60% Pinot noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15%Pinot Meunier.
Light yellow. Lively aromas of lemon zest, orange, white flower and minerals. Fresh and incisive, with more citrus and chalky character than expected from this bottling, which typically emphasizes power rather than delicacy. Finishes brisk and pure, with a strong echo of lemon and chalk. This will age.
