This wine (or at least this bottle) seems to be a bit better than a prior bottle which is saying a lot. It mostly the difficult 2011 vintage but includes almost two hundred different wines going back to the 1995 vintage. Forty-two percent of the cuvée is made up of Reserve wines. The final blend is 47 % Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay and 17% Pinot Meunier. Pop and pour. This is light gold in color. The nose has smoke, some yeast, and a bit of lemon-lime. On the palate, this is crisp, clean and penetrating. Plenty of depth. Great acidity. Long finish. This bottle forces one to take notice. I wouldn't think it will improve, but perhaps. In any event, this should easily be at this level for a decade. This will pair with almost any food.
