Generous lightly baked lemon with bright, red skinned apples, and a spritz of lemon peel dancing over the top. The palate has more of the same: homemade lemonade, sharp but sweet with a hint of lime, lemon curd and pastry. There's a touch of something riper too - dried mango and white peach. Lovely bright finish full of green apple skin and crystallised lime.
Pinot Noir is the grape of the Aube region and its primary growing area; the Côte des Bar. There's a real Burgundian revolution going on here: top-quality Pinot fruit, a growing focus on vineyard health - organic and biodynamic farming - and a commitment to making varietal Champagnes that don't try to wow you with their sense of glamour but invigorate you with their sense of place.
