Vinous: 90 points
Very pale straw. Clean aromas of herbs and flowers dominate the serious nose, backed by notes of pomaceous orchard fruit. Lively and fresh, offering flavors similar to the aromas plus hints of vanilla. Made with 100% Chardonnay like the Satèn, but bottled at a higher atmospheric pressure and with less residual sugar (4 g/L as opposed to the 6 g/L of the Satèn). Spent 42 months on the lees. This was the first wine bottled in the Ferghettina-patented angular, square-bottom bottle that is now used for all their wines. Actually seems sweeter than the Satèn, most likely because it is rounder thanks to the larger yeast contact permitted by the unique bottle shape
