Type of grapes: 90% chardonnay; 10% pinot noir.
Yield per hectare: 100 quintals per hectare, with a yield maximum allowed in must of 55%.
Vintage: 2014 vintage and therefore obtained from the skilful assemblage of the best grapes of that year; the use of pinot noir, vinified in white, helps to obtain a good body, without influencing the elegance of the prepon- derant chardonnay.
Harvest: Between the end of august and the beginning of september when the grapes have reached the correct sugar ripeness, but still have a con- siderable acidity and freshness.
Maturation: Over 42 months from harvesting, of which at least 36 on yeasts. After disgorgement, the bottles rest in the cellar for another 5-6 months.
Colour: Ample and rather complex, with scents of ripe fruit.
Bouquet: Ample and rather complex, with scents of ripe fruit.

Perlage: Very fine and persistent, creamy mousse.
