yellow robe. Has an attractive, open and easy bouquet, mandarin fruit, peach airs, a lightly floral, buttercup note. It’s all nicely together. There is grapiness from the Viognier. The palate springs out well on fleshy, plump content with smoky notes after the mid-point. Its juice runs freely, and appeals, gives a tasty nugget at half way. There’s a touch of salt on the aftertaste. This is very agreeable, a good bundle of pleasure. It will drink well with all fish. 14.5°. To 2021 June 2018


yellow robe. Peach and pear that are nicely ripe show on the nose, with light toasting, an air of pear skin and quince also. This attacks with a good mix of fresh and squeezy content. It is rounded for la table, is on gras more than vital freshness. It could be longer. 14°. This received 8% oaking. Bottled early May 2016. To 2018. June 2016

2014 ()

yellow robe. The nose is just evolving, is into exotic-mango fruits, shows a lot of Viognier influence and also honey from its evolution. The palate has a neat debut, on gras, and then gathers a tang, cooked orange towards the finish. The length is steady. 14.5°. All steel vat this year. To 2018 June 2016
