Beautiful ruby dress with depth and brilliance. On the nose and in the mouth, cabernet franc is immediately recognized: typical notes of fruits (red and black, strawberry to black cherry), floral herbaceous plants (ronces, rose, violet), and mineral (slate, graphite)... endowed with a beautiful concentration and acidity still lively, it is a cuvée today perfectly in the balance between youth and maturity with some evolved notes (truffle among others) that brings a beautiful taste relief. A bottle with enough body to attack the big meat. Nice q/p ratio.
Belle robe rubis avec de la profondeur et éclat. Au nez et en bouche, le cabernet franc se fait tout de suite reconnaître: notes typiques de fruits (rouges et noirs, de la fraise à la cerise noire), végétales herbacées florales (ronces, rose, violette), et minérales (ardoise, graphite)… doté d’une belle concentration et d’une acidité encore vive, c’est une cuvée aujourd’hui parfaitement à l’équilibre entre jeunesse et maturité avec quelques notes évoluées (truffe entre autre) qui apporte un beau relief gustatif. Une bouteille avec suffisamment de corps pour attaquer la grosse viande. Beau rapport q/p. — 12 days ago
Tried again! Blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Chardonnay, medium lemon with aromas of white flesh fruit, citrus and floral blossoms. On the palate flavors of ripe apple and citrus with floral spice. Long finish, lively acidity, nice body and texture due to Chardonnay, ending with citrus and mineral notes. Very nice! — 17 days ago
Nose: lemon, mousse, sweet orange, candied cherry, a tiny hint of floral vanilla. Smells very inviting!
Taste: mousse, vanilla, lemon meringue (?), mild nuttiness, smooth and silky texture. Distinct cherry on the finish. Marvelous. Great value, better than most champagne I’ve tried. 92. — 11 days ago
Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94
Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages. — 4 days ago
Glorious Chenin blanc. Still very young tasting. Lovely nose of sweet apple, lanolin, homeysuckle and nettle. On the palate: fantastic acidity, good density: sweet apple, lemon oil, and crushed limestone. Very nice finish. Still showing rather young, but very good. — 8 days ago
I consumed this recently at a wedding in Bibury UK between my nephew and Sir Nick Faldo’s daughter - a helluva bash by the way. This wine was a great choice for its Apple and citrus together with the fuller fleshy mouthfeel from the Muscadet grape as well as the time spent on lees giving it texture. — a month ago
Pale lemon with scents of sweet citrus notes, underripe mango, pear, pineapple core and honeysuckle form the nose of this light white. The palate is round and a little heavy in feel at first, medium acidity, hints of citrus and honey lifts the wine to a medium finish with a mineral character. — 2 days ago
Beautiful gold color. Aromas of apricot, green apple, slate and freshly washed laundry. Pallet is leesy with hints of apple and minerals. Touch of citrus on the very smooth finish. Nicely balanced. Fresh, rich and satisfying. No oak. Easy drinker. Pleasant surprise. — 7 days ago
A very proper, stand up white that happens to be a rose. Excellent concentration & legs in the glass, with a mesmerizing salmon color. Quite textured & dry on the palate, with quince, white flowers, & an impressive minerality. A lot of wine for 20$ on sale, & food will only help it. Pedigreed maker whose Chenin blancs sell starting 4/5x as much. Paired with harissa chicken & rice. — 9 days ago
