(2012) Fermented only in older oak barrels, there is barely any oak influence discernible on the nose of this very natural wine with its gently earthy and oatmeally edges to citrus and crisp, fresh, apple-skin fruit. On the palate it is a wine with a fine texture and its moderate 13.5% alcohol adding no real weight, so that crisp, racy and fresh fruit drives the wine, with a little nutty and honeyed character that is quite Burgundian, and plenty of clean, fresh, nicely long and precise acidity into the finish. Subtle and absolutely lovely.
