yellow robe; has a cosy, rounded bouquet that gives an aroma of stewed white fruits, compote, featuring peach, apricot, flan. The palate continues the natural, unforced theme, is soft and squeezy, delivers a little Marsanne tang-grip on the finish. White plum, white peach combine in the flavour, and there’s a light mineral patter within. This is floral, very joli. 13°. Bottled May 2019. 70% Marsanne, 30% Roussanne. To 2022 Dec 2019

2016

yellow robe. White fruits, plum, some sweet and slightly “high” notes show on the bouquet, with tones of flowers and dried fruits. This holds good country wine virtues, with cooked orange from the Marsanne delivered at first, with a flavour of peach also. It’s a bit piano at the end, which is rounded. I sense some reduction, so decanting is advised. 14°. Bottled Feb 2017. 500 b. To 2021 Nov 2017
