Assemblage is 50% 2013 base Atavique and 50% 2010 – 2012, 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay, vinified entirely in barrel. En tirage for 40 months. This isn’t “Atavique+” in terms of it’s overall flavor. It’s different perhaps deeper, even more complex wine, but not at all heavy and strikingly mineral. It has a slightly more dense and coiled core than Atavique. While the balance here is astounding and the finish long, you get the feeling that the entire wine has yet to reveal itself.
