If you love wine, then you’ll love this. Why? Because it has a vinous nature that we love, filled with ripe red fruit and a herbal-aniseed twist that makes this enticing.
The palate leads into a powerful stride with rich, decadent and almost a silky texture. We love the phenolics (chew or tannin if you like) that are a result of the pinot noir plus some minerality peering through from the Bouzy fruit.
Think summer strawberry, quince with pastry notes trickling through to a very pleasing finish. Moreish is the word.
It is made up of 65% pinot noir and 35% chardonnay from both Premier and Grand Cru fruit across Bouzy, Ambonnay, Louvois and Tauxieres.
