yellow robe; has a nicely sultry nose, pear in syrup, apricot present, agreeable variety. The palate is very giving, soft, pliant, juice starting to emerge from a plump centre. It finishes tightly, the close firm, on a little power. It carries the usual gras richness of the domaine, is for la table. 14.2°. €20. Bottled 5 Sept 2019. To 2023 Dec 2019

2016

yellow robe. Has a bright, instant aroma, pear in syrup, apricot, pear skin – it’s a faithful local Vioginer bouquet. This is good – bang! It holds the house style generosity, is plump and satisfying, has a strong flavour of pear, comes with solid gras richness. There is lots of flavour and also delivery for a vin de pays. It’s a great table wine. 14°. 1,500 b. €20 here at the cellars. Bottled Sept 2017. 2020-21 Nov 2017
