pale yellow robe. The nose is soft and quietly appealing, a true en finesse version of a southern white: pear-plum compote of fruits features mainly, with light licorice-aniseed from the Clairette blanche. This has an easy grace, comes with joli, plump features, white stone fruits, low-key grip on the finish. It is shapely and rounded, lightly floral wine, very charming, suited to fish. I like the detail of the blend: the Bourboulenc brings a point of acidity and fine grip from the mid to end palate. 14°. To 2019 June 2017

2008

pale yellow, light apricot hue. The nose has an aroma of cooked fruit tart, brioche, with some mineral clarity. The palate starts with a crisp delivery, is quite sustained and snappy. An upbeat, aperitif wine for immediate drinking, plus a little from its acidity. The flavour features hazelnut, greengage plums. 13.5°. 2012-13  Dec 2009
