yellow robe; the bouquet expresses tropical fruits, papaya, pineapple with vanilla from the oak, is nutty, holds well. The palate has a cosy roundness, good style, with soft gras richness unfurled. It runs into more Marsanne-inspired coolness, grip, generates good juice on the aftertaste, with lift, ping on the exit. It’s solid quality St Jo blanc, has clean, fresh lines. There are nuances, little pockets of those here and there. 13.5°. 2,000 b. 2023-24 Dec 2019
