Tasting Notes

A yellow colour with golden highlights. Delicate woody nose, combining notes of white flowers and creamy pastry. On the palate, tension underpins the whole magnificently, enlivened by delicate aromas and a definite breed. A great success. (Tasted in 2023)

Pale yellow-gold colour with green highlights. Rich nose combining white fruit, floral scents and vanilla oak. Harmonious, round and fresh on the palate, still a little angular and shy, but the essential is there. Long grapefruit finish, a fine wine (tasted in 2022).

Superb, brilliant light golden yellow colour with pale green highlights. Attractive nose of white fruit, with hints of cream and vanilla. Round and fresh on the palate, with delicious pastry notes. Mineral finish. (Tasted in 2021)

Pale gold colour with luminous highlights. Nose of breadcrumbs, honey, flowers and white fruit. A very pure, very fresh vintage, which brings out the richness of the fruit. Acidity and bitterness combine with a full, fat, velvety body. A timeless pleasure. (Tasted in 2020).

Bright, golden colour. Fine, woody-rooted nose, opening out to white flowers, sweet almond and vine peach. Delicate on the palate, entirely devoted to fruity expression. The finish is adorned with a fine acidity, a sign of ageing potential. Delicious and distinguished (tasted in 2019).

Pale gold colour with green highlights. Nose of almonds and white flowers (hawthorn) with a background of dried white fruit. Flattering on the palate, elegant substance, lovely aromatic clarity that expresses itself with freshness and depth. A sure value (tasted in 2018).
