A great value white, with fresh grapefruit and crisp acidity. In a few months, the current raw edge will have softened, as the 60% Sémillon in the blend calms down. But it’s still a great summer drink.
A heavily wood-dominated wine, and firmly tannic. The fruit is almost a component of the wood, which needs 2 years to calm down. This shows some freshness and acidity however, and that helps it on its way.
Soft, lightweight, juicy, well-made wine, exhibiting some wood, spice, fresh black currant juice, and a tight core of tannins. There is no mistaking the cool vintage origins of this wine.
