Tasting notes
A wine that develops a complex and full-bodied aromatic range with notes of toasted bread and honey. This is coupled with a beautiful delicacy due to its location on the hillside. This racy wine is pure and straight, and carries a good ageing potential.
Food and wine pairings
Ideal with fatted chicken in cream sauce and Epoisse cheese.

Reviews

"Another aromatic world again – spiced, faintly reductive. Mouth-filling, almost shimmering with flavour, slightly reductive but beautifully defined. Long, mineral width, slowly mouth-watering. That’s a super wine again. "
