Winery tasting. An 86% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Noir blend. Great consistency of style from vintage to vintage. Lots of effervescence and very tiny bubbles that cling to the glass and rise slowly. Very complex flavors and aromas with toast, citrus, brioche, and crisp apple. Wonderful rich, creamy mouthfeel and a long finish.
Winery tasting. From 86% chardonnay, the remainder pinot noir. Rich with lots of red fruit flavors prevailing (my notes say "thick.."), this had a texture and taste which surprised me very much for a blend that's predominantly chardonnay. Lovely offering, and based on the cepage I would have guess this to be switched withe '06 reserve tasted at the same time.
