First Lady of the PIERRO Household. Elegant, poised and refined with a fruity undertone, like any self-respecting Duchess. Her reputation precedes her from years of experience and loyalty to her style. At the party she extends a delicate hand to you in greeting, her white peach and nectarine skin lit up by a seamless smile and a playful citrus twinkle in her eye. She dresses in sumptuous layers of creamy silk, underpinned with a beautiful, steely structure and her flowing skirts trail behind her in a long, harmonious and elegant finish. Just a sip and she inclines her head gently over her shoulder as she walks away, leaving you with a lingering impression of purity, balance and underlying power that stays with you long after she has left the room.
Handpicked, hand-sorted, gently whole-bunch pressed. Fermented and matured in French oak (50% new, 50% one year old). Malolactic secondary fermentation. Hand-stirred on the lees for 12 months.
Delibes’ Flower Duet
Harmony; delicate elegance balanced perfectly with richness, depth and hidden power. Long, lingering finish that leaves one feeling delightfully pensive and soothed!
Light, bright yellow with a touch of green. Melon, stone fruit, white peach and roasted cashew aromas. The palate is beautifully balanced with a creamy texture. Power with elegance, freshness with complexity and all those butterscotch and brioche flavours bouncing around.
A quintessential PIERRO Chardonnay from a great vintage.
