2015 vintage. True to type: dried tart cherries, cranberry, lingonberry, spiced red plum, sandalwood, menthol, tar, dried rose petals, licorice, stale nutmeg. Lots of structure and long finish. James very much enjoyed with a lamb dish. — 4 days ago
2018 vintage. Good example of oaked Sauv Blanc blend (even says "elevé en fûts de chêne" on the label). 70-20-10 SB, Sémillon, Muscadelle. Lemon meringue, dill, a little coconut, banana peel, sunflower seed, dandelion. Oak is definitely overt, but well-integrated. — a month ago
2013 vintage. Wow. What a big, yet surprisingly refined wine. Roasted black cherry, blackberry, mulberry, smoke, cooling eucalyptus or mint, tangy blood orange peel, dusty sage, walnut skin. Very long finish. Raising a glass to my dearly departed grandmother tonight. Lots of life ahead for this wine. — a month ago
2017 vintage. Surprisingly golden in color, considering its youth. Petrol and white floral notes on the nose, lots of acidity in the palate. Good concentration, with melon, green apple, lime, white nectarine, honeysuckle, little bit of green. Sweetness is very discreet. — 2 months ago
2015 vintage. Grippy and gritty tannins. Blackberry, tree bark, currant, elderberry, black plum, clove, cassia, cedar. A bit of a baked quality to the fruit, but doesn't seem overipe or candied. — 2 months ago
