pale yellow. Ripe pear and apricot aroma. The attack is on white fruits, pear in syrup, with a little sweetness. It drifts towards the finish, shows some tang, bitter on the close. 13°. To 2022 Dec 2019


yellow colour. Pear, white fruits, fennel, banana airs on the nose, which could be clearer, more distinct. The palate has a stewed fruits flavour, peach stone, nectarine, the close rather exerted, preceded by soft content. The fruit on the finish isn’t quite round, ripe. 13°. To 2021 Dec 2019


pale, flinty colour. The nose gives a low-key pear fruit aroma, a little beeswax. This is gentle, floral, nice and natural wine with quiet gras richness. It is bonny, unpretentious wine with tender pear fruit. “It is very fruited, floral, “ François Corompt. 13°. €21. 2017-18  Dec 2015


very pale; greengage plum, nutty air with some honey and SO2. This is tight, a little stretched on the palate, has a white fruits jam flavour, ends early. “It is mineral, more than the 2014,” François Corompt. To 2017  Dec 2015
