2012 ()

yellow, green tints; passion fruit, guava, exotic airs, citrus, lime marmalade – a mixed bag in a wide, humming charge bouquet that is cellar-led. The palate has a metallic tint to its apricot, white peach flavour; there sre soft moments here and there, notably towards the finish, where there are infused tilleul (linden)  touches. It grips quite well. Decant it to allow a more settled, less tight glass of wine. Would be rated more highly if less techno. 13°. €2.90. 2016-17  Oct 2013

2011 ()

bright, flinty yellow; has a warm, pear aroma that is round and inviting; there are ripe flan-banana suggestions, white raisin notes. There is Viognier fat in the palate, with honey, acacia flower and cooked pear in the flavour. This round, and even though it is low in acidity, is supple and calm. Spice is evident on the aftertaste. To 2015. 40% Vio, 30% Gren bl, 30% Rouss this year. May 2012

2010

soft yellow robe; light flan aroma with lime seasoning and a vanilla backdrop, a hint of toast – an attractive bouquet. The palate is supple, right away, has a clear elegance, a smooth texture all through. It drinks well now. Shows white plum, greengage fruit on the finish. To 2014 May 2012
