Full-on big and complex chardonnay with the sophistication of Dijon fruit, we have succeeded in picking fully
ripe, but with good balance of acidity, and vinifying with restrained but discernible French oak. It is similar to
the 1998, probably due to roundness, ripeness and decent alcohol. It resembles Corton to my palate and
should reward those appreciating rich, lemon aspects, size, ageability and a balanced complexity.
