A buoyant mousse slowly dissipates to reveal a pale straw coloured base that has pale gold edges. The fine bead showing excellent persistence. Citrusy chalk tinged aromas are complemented by yeast lees, subtle red apple and baked bread. Nicely meshed flavours of pear, citrus and baked bread mix with yeast lees and delicate quince characters. Vivid acidity lends a refreshing feel to the mouth watering conclusion.

Other Reviews….
Finely balanced and fresh, with the delicate bead carrying appealing ripe black cherry and green apple fruit, plus a fragrant mix of lime blossom, saffron, toasted almond and ground coffee details. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. Drink now.

Regularly self-selects itself for its quality/price ratio. A 50/30/20% blend of pinot noir, pinot meunier and chardonnay, 30% reserve (a collection of more than 150 wines), on yeast lees for a minimum of 24 months; dosage 8g/l. The bouquet has a spicy edge, the palate long and juicy with citrus and bosc pear.
