Pure chardonnay showing the finesse this grape brings. Citrus and floral notes combine with delicious brioche and sweet pastry aromas. The palate is alive, with lemon zest flavours and, lingering, moorish acidity.
Lifted spice and white floral aromas over fresh raspberry and cherry notes. The ageing of a small proportion of the reserve wine in oak barrel adds texture and body to the palate, complementing the powerful pinot noir the region of Bouzy produces.
