The Haut Lieu Sec opens with inviting aromas of yellow pear-skin, hints of preserved lemon and green herbs, with a white flower fragrance. This cool freshness follows onto the palate, giving way to yellow plum and crunchy green apple alongside slate and chalk elements. A bright, crisp and very elegant Haut Lieu Sec.
Already has the lanolin character very prominently on the nose, then fairly light-bodied fruit with a ripe, tropical citrus character, plus a bit of peach. Perhaps a little brief, but has lovely typical Chenin funkiness. 13%.Drink 2017-2022

Perfect to enjoy with any appetiser....more
