Made of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Light golden color with a modest effervescence. Very seductive nose of applecake, mocha, iron oat, graphite and yeast with overlaying gunpowder that reminds me of good times from my youth when I was playing with harmless fireworks. On the palate it is surprisingly citrus orientated with grapefruit and sun riped blood oranges together with vanilla, Turkish delight, breadcrust and again that lovely gunpowder. On the mid palate there is reinette apple and a hint of blueberry. The finish is long and toasty with typical Aÿ minerality. I suspect that this wine will mature fast. Drink now untill 2025.
