This is 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from 40-year-old vines in Ambonnay, aged completely in barrel, no malo and virtually no dosage. It is a seductive, layered, yet powerful expression of Ambonnay and, with the Blanc de Noirs, represents one of the very finest wines of the Montagne de Reims Grand Cru area. The 2009 is a blinder that is not to be missed. - Importer Note
