2008 was a very fresh vintage, which gives the wine a sublime sharpness. The sun coming back before and during the harvest resulted in perfectly ripe grapes, on top of their very healthy state. These characteristics put the 2008 alongside the great vintages of 1988, 1989, 1990: vintages perfectly crafted for bottle ageing.
Notes from the Cellar "2008 was a great vintage, especially for the Chardonnays. They are in large majority in the blend to maintain the typical freshness of this vintage : the grapes was showing high acidity and excellent phenolic maturity. The Pinots Noir from Ambonnay bring body, necessary so that the wine represent the best of its vintage."
