Reviews & Scores

A classic Chassagne with an inviting nose of clean green apple and citrus fruits with a hint of yellow plums and figs. This is followed by a lovely richness on the palate characterised by apples and stone fruit and an energetic acidity with spicy notes on the finish. A beautifully balanced, zingy Chassagne with lovely depth of flavour it will be delicious from release. Drink from 2014.
