A wine of numbers! Seventy percent of this wine is from a single vintage, and thirty percent from reserve wines (and an equal split of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.) Then of those reserve wines, thirty percent is from wine stored in oak barrels that are a blend of wines from 30 different years - a bit like a sherry solera.
What a wine - truffles, honey, cooked peaches and a lovely long, semi sweet palate. A fabulous example of a sweeter Vouvray. Wine available Mid May 2018. Contains Sulphites
Grenache comes to the fore, a super balance of fruit and spice. Fennel comes out with jammy red berries and spice. A lovely Chateauneuf du Pape from this great producer....
"Oyster shells, a little smoke and then lemon coming out. A nice, well balanced palate, good acidity, easy and with a hint of baked apple on the finish. Good"
