Winemaker's Notes

A particularly dense and structured wine, whose generous structure is plush with candied orange peel, highlighted with a touch of smoked tea and toasted almonds. An incredibly long finish and the freshness of the Chardonnays tame the Pinots Noirs' vigor. Balanced and elegantly charming.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and lightly toasty, this offers fine integration on a firm bead, with vibrant acidity and flavors of patisserie apple and pear, almond financier, crystallized honey, fleur de sel and kumquat. Hints of smoke and ripe fruit linger on the finish. Drink now through 2025."
93 Points

"Regis Camus found the pinot noir of 2006 particularly intense, so he increased the proportion of chardonnay in this blend, achieving a wine off dept and multidimensional flavor. There's youthful tightness and austerity, focused in on lime pith (and, perhaps, a little banana pith0, developing richer, juicy notes of pear as it opens. "
