Ripe citrus, orange oils, stone-fruits and under-notes of smoke. Like a baby brother to the 2014, same focus, energy and drive, yet at the same time not as tightly wound and will show its charms earlier. Lots of texture, grip and tension.

From a small vineyard above and behind the village of Saint Aubin as the slope starts facing westerly. Sharp shards of limestone poke out of a very white, chalky Argovian soil at the top of the vineyard, slowly merging into a iron-rich Callovian limestone from marl at the base of the slope. The fruit from the top is more mineral and acid driven, with grapes lower down giving richer, riper, fruit-driven character. Being westerly facing and tucked up towards the HautesCôte de Beaune, this is a late ripening site with old vines delivering classic Saint Aubin aromatics, flavours and verve.

A light style of gin - hints of juniper and herbs which make a lovely, light, refreshing alternative to bigger juniper focused London Dry Gins.
