Winemaker Notes :
The Collection 242 blend is dominated by chardonnay which was of exceptional quality in the 2017 vintage. The perfectly ripe chardonnay grapes lend the wine its aromas of ripe, sweet fruit complemented by subtle oaky notes. The palate is rich and ripe with a luxurious texture that coats the palate, the signature of an outstanding chardonnay. The pinot noir and Meunier grapes from the Vallee da la Marne complete the wine's broad, luscious, smooth and juicy character. The finish is energetic and fresh.
Blend : 42% Chardonnay, 36% Pinot noir, 22% Meunier. A new format non-vintage that designates the year of the 242nd harvast, 2017, plus reserve wine of 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. Drink now or hold.
