(2016) When Laurent arrived, the wine from this Chateau was made in big old wooden vats, but to ensure quality and consistency Laurent changed those to steel, but matures the wines with 5% new barrels and 5% older barrels from Latour’s Burgundy cellars. Nice Beaujolais lift of violet and kirsch here, the oak not really evident. It jas real smoothness and elegance on the palate, a very orangey bright acidity, but a nice flowing and elegant freshness of red fruit.
(2016) From a vineyard belonging to the Fessy family. Very appealing lift and cherry freshness, a touch of bubblegum and classic Bojo aromas. The palate has a really nice creamy fruitiness., it is a full and ripe style with a good depth of fruit. Lovely lift and freshness and that violet, kirsch and intense blueberry fruit character. Very delicious.
(2016) A saignée of Pinot Noir. Seems a little yeastier than the brut in some ways, very delicate colour and very delicate berry aromas, little rose-hip floral nuances too, and nicely dry, redcurrant and raspberry palate with a lovely shimmering length.
