The 2009 Millesime is characterized by small creamy bubbles forming a persistent vibration in the center of the glass. The Chardonnay brings finesse, minerality with a delicate freshness and the Pinot Noir delights with complexity, structure, and an elegant richness, showing incredible balance and exceptional length.”
