Bright yellow with a slight amber hue. There are some lovely well-developed aromas of honey, acacia, toffee and brioche. The dominant variety Pinot Noir gives this wine structure and power, whilst the Chardonnay brings a touch of freshness. Dried fruits and chestnut resonate on the palate.

2002 was a little challenging for the production of Millésimé due to unstable weather, particularly in July. However, the Indian summer allowed exceptional maturity of berries in September. The harvest was average in volume, but the quality of the fruit was excellent and 2002 now reveals itself as one of the very best vintages of the past few decades. Millésimé benefits from extended ageing in cellar, an average of 8 years, giving a powerful, structured and full bodied style of wine which is beautifully balanced
