This is Cattier's best wine, a fine blend of 60% red grapes and 40% Chardonnay, very refined, sophisticated. It has an element of toast, ripe fruits with green fruit flavors and almonds. It could well age over the next 5 years, but at this stage it is already well integrated, and delicious as a food wine.
