Other Reviews….
All hail the white blend. This one is 45% Muscadelle, 30% Roussanne, 12% Viognier, 7% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Semillon and 2% Chardonnay. Will be interested to find out the RRP here as it’s a lovely, lovely wine.
So much tension, so much texture, so quartz-like to boot. This is dry, chalky and honeyed at once. Sparks fly, sans flint. Yellow stonefruit, green apple and white flower flavours run with the texture. It offers a tense kind of tension, like a well-paced drama. Excellence. Drink 2021-2024+
