The final blend was 61% Chardonnay, 18% Pinot Noir and 21% Pinot Meunier with reserve wines 33% of the total.

The 2006 growing season saw a cold and snowy winter, a mild but stormy spring, a summer that was very warm to start with but which finished cold and rainy. It was necessary to sort quite strictly but the Chardonnays were very fine and the Pinots vinous and powerful. The blend was 54% Chardonnay, 20% Pinot Noir and 26% Pinot Meunier with reserve wines comprising 27% of the whole.
