(2015) A rosé made from 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, this spends 30 months on the lees and has a low dosage of 6.5g/l and alcohol of 13.0%. It's a pale rosé with a little red fruit and a light struck-match character. Cool and fresh, with a touch of copper to the colour, it is also slightly meaty. Fine freshness in the mouth, dry and that cool, savoury and gastronomic quality is to the fore. Very good quality.
(2014) A blend of 60% Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir made as a saignée, with colour coming from 8 to 10 hours of skin contact. 30 months on the lees and 7g/l residual sugar. Onion skin/light bronze colour. Very attractive nose, with a touch of earth and truffle, and that inherent fruit ripeness and lightly buttery quality coming through. On the palate the flavours are quite robust, a touch earthy, but not terribly complex or long - that rip of pithy acidity sweeps through, leaving this pretty lean.
(2014) South facing vineyards, 48% Pinot Noir, the rest Chardonnay. Very pale but bright pink. Very fresh, a touch of watermelon perhaps, a touch of redcurrant, but again that creamy vanilla touch comes through. On the palate it is rounded and fruity, a tiny nod towards strawberry, but the acidity is again so bright and lemony crisp, pushing through and a savoury, earthy touch with a nice raspberry tartness and good length.
(2014) Light cherry colour and lighter cherry and fresh sweet red fruit flavours. Nice sense of richness onto the palate, beautifully balanced, with weight and texture. A really lovely elegance across this range.
(2014) A blend of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir, like the Brut, all in stainless steel with 30 months of total ageing and 9.5g/l or sugar. It has a pretty and vivid colour, and plenty of tiny bubbles. The nose is gently earthy, with a dry redcurrant fruitiness and hint of cherry. In the mouth it is a dry style, a great core of lemony acidity driving the wine along rather than any red fruit character, though that hint of Pinot earthiness and of red berries does show through on the finish.
