Winery notes (NV)
"Consisting predominantly of Chardonnay blended with Pinot Noir this Méthode Traditionnelle was made to exacting standards using time-honoured techniques. Adapting the Méthode Marlborough stringent criteria, it was carefully crafted from our own fine Marlborough grapes, skilfully blended, twice fermented and aged on lees for at least 18 months. A hint of yeastiness and huge acid backbone linger behind abundant wild lemon and citrus fruit aromas. This is followed by a voluptuously long-lasting and creamy finish. This wine boasts a silkily sparkling texture and fine, persistent mousse."

88/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2018 (NV)
"Fresh, lively, yeasty and attractive bouquet of sparkling wine – white peach and grapefruit, apple and fresh bread. Crisp, dry and fruity with a refreshing acidity accentuating the flavours of white peach and citrus. A floral note emerges alongside the yeasty layer. Crisp, dry and balanced finish. Drink now and through 2022."

90/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, December 2015 (NV)
"Rich and opulent, the fragrant bouquet shows baked apple, lemon peel, floral and yeasty characters. The palate delivers excellent weight and plush texture, beautifully structured by bright acidity. This is a full-flavoured expression offering loads of attractive flavours. Made from the two classic grape varieties: pinot noir and chardonnay, and the finished wine was matured on lees for 18 months."

4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2016 (NV)
"Bright, light golden-hued straw-yellow colour with some depth, the bubbles vigorous and moderately fine. The bouquet is firm and concentrated with a harmoniously layered core of ripe yellow stonefruits showing Pinot Noir, underlined by subtle, bready-yeast and nutty notes, along with chalky, mineral detail. Dryish to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated heart of savoury yellow stonefruit flavours melded harmoniously with bready autolysis, nuts and mineral notes. The mouthfeel is rounded, with a soft mousse spreading the flavours across the palate. This has good presence, and the wine flows along a soft-textured line enlivened by background acidity. The wine carries to a soft and sustained finish with bread and nutty flavours. This is a well-concentrated, rounded methode traditionnelle with savoury Pinot Noir fruit and bready and nutty autolytic complexity. Serve as an aperitif and with white meat dishes over the next 2+ years. A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from three vineyards, fermented to dryness with MLF bottled after 10 months for secondary fermentation and aging 18 months on lees before disgorgement. The wine is 12.5% alc. and has a dosage of 8.5 g/L. Lot L20."
