Always very nice cuvée Dualissime Blanc de blancs Grand Cru, 100% Chardonnay, 85% harvest 2013 and 15% reserve wines aged in enamelled vats, a very fine but powerful cuvée, with this hint of freshness and well characteristic fruity, very persistent on the nose as in the mouth, of scented mouth. Also this remarkable Blanc de blancs cuvée de Réserve R.R, 100% Chardonnay, 65% harvest de 2015 et 35% de vins de réserve vieillis en foudre, it is a Grand Cru pur Chardonnay, whose freshness highlights the fruit, a distinguished wine, with a nose of rose, smooth and dry at the same time, where spices and fresh flowers blend in the palate. As for the vintage Knights Grand Cru, 100% Chardonnay and 100% Grands Crus, 65% harvest of 2013 and 35% reserve wines aged in lightning, it has a nice dress, it combines freshness, structure and homogeneity, with these nuances of flowers and quince, of a beautiful harmony, a beautiful rich wine, all in delicacy.
