Critical Acclaim JS93 James Suckling - "I drink this regularly and always enjoy it. Wonderful aromas of light dough, fresh flowers, and sliced pears and peaches. Full-bodied yet agile and fresh, it shows layers of marvelous light tropical fruit and cream with hints of dough on the finish. Mostly 2011 with some reserve wines. From 47% Pinot Meunier, 30% Chardonnay and the rest Pinot Noir. Bottled April 2012." 40% Pinot Meunier 30% Pinot Noir 30% Chardonnay Fruit comes from Vallée de la Marne and is made up of 3 vintages with up to 40% reserve wine.
