Tasting Note:

Like the Grand Cellier d’Or, this comes from the prime vineyard of Les Blanches Voies, though the fruit here is sourced from a parcel of even older vines. In the press Laurent restricts this to the very heart of the pressing, extracting just 1500 lts from a 4000kg load, before fermentation and elevage in barriques of between one and three years old. in bottle this receives 60 months sur lie prior to disgorgement. The product of a cooler year, this has glorious purity and true finesse – the very heart of the pressing providing a wine of delicacy and intricate intensity as salty citrus zest flavours gather into a long and laser focussed finish. As good as this is now, there’s clearly much more to come here.
