(2023) A blend of Sauvignon Blanc (60%) from 80-year-old vines and Chardonnay. There was 24 hours skin contact for the Sauvignon, followed by 12 months ageing on the lees for the blend. A very composed, unflashy nose, not showing Sauvignon's herbaceous side too much, instead citrus and a cool apple and pear skin firmness. In something of a house style, the palate really fleshes out with sweet and ripe fruit concentration, suggesting juicy red apples and lemon zest. Again too, a little grippy phenolic edge from that skin contact. There's real concentration here, with the acid etching the finish it's a substantial wine that needs food. de Montcy suggest everything from cheese to fish to chicken.
