2016 ()

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

2015

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
