pale yellow. The nose is dumb, has a cooked lemon aroma that isn’t very clear or convincing. This is rather weighty on the attack, and presents a nondescript white fruits flavour, lacking late lift and drive. Plain wine. 13°. 65,000 b. €4.90 at the cellars. To mid-2017  June 2016

pale yellow; fresh, outgoing, stylish nose – lime, light mandarin, Bergamot, delicate pear – this is classy. The palate picks up the understated harmony of the nose; there is a mingle of tangerine and quince, a discreet floral tune also. Very good acidity present that keeps nudging it along its path. It finishes roundly and clearly. This is the right style of Côtes du Rhône, the way to go – it combines style, harmony and balance. Mainly an aperitif wine. 13°. To 2015  Oct 2012
