At least 30 months of ageing sur lie in Il Mosnel’s 17th-century cellars are required for this blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Noir cuvée to achieve its elegance and balance. This wine immediately impresses with shimmering, gold-shot reflections and a delicate, leisurely cascade of tiny bubbles. Vibrantly crisp citron and white peach add to a nose of fragrant wild herbs and lemon biscuits. The wine has an electric attack, that moves into a dry, sharply-delineated palate notable for its vibrant fruit and near-endless, harmoniously-proportioned finish. .

There is a soft element to this wine with creamy effervescence, mild acidity and a rich mouthfeel. This wine should evolve over the next few years but is best consumed in the near term.
