Winemaker's Notes

Grape Type: 100% Chardonnay

More accurately entitled "Tres Vieilles Vignes" (very old vines), this rare cuvee is made up of vines 25 to 65 years old. The resulting cuvee is very rich, powerful, and structured. Should be cellared for at least 3 to 10 years, depending on the style of the vintage.

"Complex, musky nose combines apple, minerals, hazelnut, green almond, earth and brioche Fat, full and quite suave, with a silky texture and plenty of power. Complex flavors of smoke, spice and minerals, lifted by a bright citric quality. Finishes bright, firm and persistent."
-International Wine Cellar

Food pairings: turkey, fish, duck, chicken.
