Notes of ripe black currant Mandarin orange peel and grilled nut are accented by hints of candied ginger briny oyster shell verbena and ground cardamom spice. This burns bright from start to finish yet its fine integration and lovely raw silklike mousse pull it all together into a seamless vibrant package. Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Disgorged Autumn 2019. Drink now through 2038.
