2018

yellow robe; has an oxidative air, combines nuts/cheese, peach. The palate has a dried fruits, compote of white fruits flavour, a compact underpinning, the close rather firm. It’s table wine, for a mushroom risotto, say. It’s already en route – early. To 2022 Feb 2020

2017

sturdy yellow robe; the nose has a sweetly-fruited air, the pear fruit of Viognier prominent, notes of aniseed. The palate has a fleshy debut, develops a chewy side, white fruits jam, the finish lip-smacking. This comes in a mature style, fullness over freshness. 13°. To 2021 Feb 2019

2014 ()

fine yellow robe. Has a white peach jam aroma, honey and flan present, a hint of banana: this is a rounded bouquet. This has good heart, a tasty middle, a flavour of apricot and honey, fruit jelly. It finishes with a quince tang and grip. This drinks well and softly, is a wine for la table – fish, poultry. Bottled Aug 2015. 2019-20  Oct 2015
