A private dinner at a friend's (London, UK): Magnum purchased at the winery. A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay. Gentle but lively mousse, ripe Pinot fruit, mature but fresh, medium weight, seamless, hint of nuttiness, good intensity, quite lovely and fully mature.
Served alongside some very cheesy gougeres, this showed a very rich, apple and citrus dominated palate. The overall depth of flavor was impressive. It partnered well with the food, and maintained a consistent flavor profile through the hour+ that we took to drain the bottle. My one criticism was that when it warmed up the wine was overly sweet.
