‘Seize the Day’: rather an apt title for this very special cuvée from Grongnet. It is a blend of 60% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier, with all fruit sourced from their vineyards in the village of Etoges. This wine is barrel fermented and matured in large oak foudres (much like Krug, Selosse and Jacquesson). This maturation gives an added depth and complexity and the wines do not go through malolactic fermentation. The base wine is predominately 2007. Possessing multi-layered, complex spicy flavours, it is rich and full on the palate but beautifully balanced by a spine of refreshing acidity. Very classy.
