DESCRIPTION

You’ll find the birthplace of this 2010 vintage on a hillside at the heart of a 2.5-acre, premier cru parcel in the Pierry terroir. Bruno Michel carefully selected the best grape clusters from this terroir, which benefits from southwestern exposure to enhance its aromas. It has surprising, perfumed notes of rose, lime and bergamot and it sets itself apart thanks to its crispness and minerality. This is an expressive cuvée with uncommon balance.Brut (residual sugar: 6g/l)
