(2016) This cuvee sees partial malolactic, very low sulphur, and 95% is fermented and aged in barrel. From very rocky soils on limestone at 1450 metres. The nose has a melon and orange peel, a gently nutty oak, interesting herbal, almost camomile notes. The palate is riven with a mineral acidity, real saltiness and elegant,mouth-watering finish. At time of wrtiting the 2013 has still to arrive in the UK.
(2016) From a limestone soil. Seems to have a touch more oak than the 'stones', a bit of flint here too, a much more apple and nut profile, citrus too. The palate again has a hugely streaking minerality and saline finish, with such a thrust of juicy and pithy citrus. Delicious, again that mouth-watering style, a little extra flinty aromatic, a little extra juicy depth.
