“Quality does not have to come with great age! This is a fresh and elegant vintage in which Chardonnay expresses itself fully." - Cellar master Odilon de Varine
A shimmering, translucent wine. A wonderfully fresh and expressive first impression reveals an assortment of white fleshed fruit such as pear and peach which develops into notes of grapefruit, aniseed and liquorice.
The lively attack is delightfully taut. The finely poised, full-bodied palate remains incredibly light, with every sip revealing notes of damson, mirabelle plum, and ever-present pear, followed by the citrus flavours of orange and pink grapefruit. Sustained by a bold liveliness, the wine finishes satisfyingly with just a hint of salinity.
67% Chardonnay, Pinot Noir 33%.
