After bottling, the wine were aged in the cellar for 32 months before being disgorged and finished to 3 grams per liter of dosage. The Pinot Noir dominate nature of the cuvee comes to the front of the nose with red fleshed stone fruits, hazelnut, cream, light citrus and a dusting of minerality. The palate shows the interplay of oak with excellent texture, plums, cream, minerality, and a light oak barrel spice note.
