Vinous: 91 points
(45% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Meunier and 10% Pinot Noir; 9 g/l dosage; disgorged on February 25, 2014): Light, bright gold. Sexy smoke- and mineral-laced aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, plus with a suave floral overtone and a late hint of vanilla. Sappy and seamless on the palate, offering pliant orange and yellow apple flavors and a bracing jolt of chalky minerals. Closes with repeating smokiness and strong thrust, leaving a subtle honey note behind.
