Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"A blend of 56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir from the ‘Om Santi’, ‘Pinnacles’ and ‘Winery’ blocks, fermented to 12.2% alc. and 7.6 g/L RS with 100% MLF and 12 months on primary lees, the wine spending 30 months en tirage, and disgorged on 2 December 2016. ​

The bouquet is fresh with finely concentrated and intense aromas of bready-yeasty autolysis harmoniously melded with white and yellow stonefruits, florals and delicate nutty notes. This is finefeatured and youthfully undeveloped in expression. ​Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with a fine-featured core of white and yellow stonefruits harmoniously detailed with fresh, bready-yeasty autolysis. The fruit isclear and bright, and balanced by lively acidity and the palate is carried alonga fine, dry, phenolic-threaded line. The mouthfeel shows restrained effervescence and mouse, and the wine leads to a light, lingering finish of stonefruits and bread. This is an elegant and harmonious, fine-featured method traditionnelle with stonefruit and bready flavours.​"
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"This is the district's finest sparkling (although very few are produced). The 2013 vintage, grown at three sites, is a blend of Chardonnay (56 per cent) and Pinot Noir (44 per cent), disgorged in December 2016 after maturing for 30 months on its yeast lees. Pale lemon/green, it is vivacious, with strong, vibrant, citrusy, gently yeasty and biscuity flavours, considerable complexity, balanced acidity and a dryish (7.6 grams/litre residual sugar), very harmonious finish. An elegant, youthful wine, it should develop very gracefully."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"​A beautifully composed methode traditionnelle, the complex bouquet shows white stone fruit, lemon peel, brioche and yeasty aromas, leading to a flavoursome palate that is elegant and generous at the same time. Impeccably balanced and structured, the wine offers fine texture and flowing mouthfeel, wonderfully framed by crisp acidity, and finishes persistent and charming. At its best: now to 2020."
