pale, shiny sub-yellow. Pronounced, up and at ‘em nose, a wave of compote of white fruits, some banana ripeness, plus a crisp white plum, gooseberry zest, nearly Sauvignon. The palate is easily drinkable, has roundness and attractive depth, sprinkles alert, lively white fruits with a salty tang in them. Free wheeling white Rhône, good wine that lasts well, gives a final tingle of elder and licorice, sound cut. A lot to like: it holds a fine spot of richness, is a w.o.w. wine, suited to the aperitif. 12.5°. 2016-17  Oct 2013
