"Made since Franck’s first year. Just a touch of the coquillage, the light marine touch that is often found in Montagny. As with so many whites this year it is perfectly balanced and delivers more at the back of the mouth than the front. Pristine apples and fine chiselled length. "

"Less obviously Montagny – it could be from many locations – slightly toasty, wider, structural. A hint of gas, rounder like the last, almost tannic, a small amount more considered in delivery and showing some mouth-watering minerality in the finish. This is still round, like the first, an extra salinity and an extra floral in the long finish – more serious but still fun – simply excellent!"
