“The second (2004/2002/2000) blend of Extra Age is such a beautiful cuvée literally bringing together all the fine features of the three great vintages. There is the broadness and creaminess of 2000 and the structure and opulent fruit of the 2002. Finally the 2004 gives an impeccable freshness and vivacity to it. The aroma spectrum ranges from tropical fruit to apple, spices, marmalade and viennoiserie. This blend really convinced of this cuvée's potential, so I hope in the future we will see the vintages written on the label so that we can better follow and benefit from its ageing capacity. ”

“(60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay; 6 g/l dosage; L7500S80A): Pale gold. Fresh citrus fruit and honeysuckle aromas are complemented by chalky minerals and toasty lees. Dry and precise, offering energetic Meyer lemon and pear flavors and a hint of anise that builds with air. Finishes stony and very long, with resonating spiciness, firm minerality and a suave, building floral quality.”
