William Bass & Co

William Downie

Gippsland Pinot Noir 2013

Crystal clear bright Ruby in colour. Blue and red fruits combined with loam and stalks - forest floor notes. Great extraction on the palate but not overly so. Medium plus verging on profound intensity. I am a long time fan of Bass Phillip who are in Gippsland and this is made by the gifted younger winemaker William Downie. An exceptional Pinot which could be cellared for another 5 years if so desired. Prior notes from October last year still apply. — 19 days ago

Bass Phillip

The Estate Pinot Noir 2014

Pale to mid Ruby in colour. A beautiful perfumed nose with some whole bunch influence, Forest floor, rhubarb, compost heap. Towards the end of the bottle a confectionery, Cherry tart, red jelly note amongst the savoury earthy notes. The sweet palate indicates new world but all its other attributes indicate Burgundy. Red fruits with great balance showing both lovely fruit and skilled winemaking. Excellent length and persistence - very impressive. — 13 days ago

Domaine William Fèvre

Montée de Tonnerre Chablis 1er Cru Chardonnay 2013

Nose is green Apple, citrus, almost lime, rock, has a vegetal quality that Chablis can have sometimes when it’s really minerally strong. Typical salinity there. Rounder than the 2014 and much more approachable. Less acid but acid still moderate. My favorite 1er Cru vineyard in Chablis. — 4 days ago
