This bottle of 2013 vintage is one of the very few that Maso Martis has produced with its own best grapes, combining the elegance of Pinot Noir with the fragrance of Chardonnay and the softness of Meunier. The 9 years’ long aging is it’s style signature.
The mineral touch gives the palate extraordinary softness and strong sapidity. Creamy and balanced in the mouth.
Straw yellow with golden highlights
Pastry, exotic fruit, citrus and flowers, fragrance of toasted bread

The harvest is hand-picked into shallow boxes, followed immediately by a soft pressing of whole grapes Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, which are processed separately. Pinot Noir and Meunier after fermentation are aged in steel tanks, while the Chardonnay is fermented and aged in oak barrels for 8 months. The following spring, the wine is bottled with the addition of selected yeasts (tirage). After staying on the lees for at least 9 years, you run the riddling and disgorging with the addition of the liqueur d’expedition.
