Decanter writes "The nose opens with the fresh ripeness of yellow apple and highlights of Granny Smith. It has beautifully subtle autolysis on the palate, deepening into notes of creamy apple crumble, Golden Delicious and Mirabelle plum, while remaining utterly strait-laced. Elegance, length and absolute freshness are inherent and quietly convincing."
The winery writes "Freshness and fruit aromas on the nose. The Chardonnay offers a delicacy underscored by aromas of yellow fruit such as peach and Mirabel plum. On the palate the Pinot Noir from Aÿ has a magnificent structure. Hawthorn and white blossom intertwine harmoniously, with a finely-honed acidity carried by notes of citrus."
