Tasting Notes

A wine which goes from strength to strength each vintage, the 2012 is very refreshing with an expressive and elegant bouquet of acacia flowers, orange blossom, green apples and white peaches. The palate is bursting with zesty citrus flavours with nuances of crisp apples, sweet apricots and soft stone fruits. A very attractive and fragrant wine, it will be delicious from release.

Reviews & Scores

In a trim, linear style, this white exhibits clean grapefruit, pear and apple notes, with a moderately long finish.
87 Points, Wine Spectator

(bottled in March): Bright, pale yellow. Aromas of apple and flowers complicated by a musky leesy note (this wine spent just one month on its lees). Sappy, concentrated apple and honeysuckle flavors show noteworthy extract. Finishes with a refreshing bitter edge and lovely length and grip. A very good vintage for this wine. In comparison, noted Bruna Giacosa, the 2011 was less aromatic.

TASTING NOTES

The Bourgogne Blanc, which had completed its malo by springtime, is already in bottle and offers good fruit weight and mid-palate density but plenty of freshness too. The nose is pure and floral and the wine bounds along energetically, with a crisp, well-defined finish suggesting versatility, equally at home on its own as with simple foods. Drink from 2014.

TASTING NOTES

The last of the family’s grapes to be harvested, usually in mid-October, this site in Bennet Valley is cool and foggy and pushes the boundaries of ripening, giving fruit with delicate flavours and low alcohol. The blend is 97% Roussanne, with just a touch of Viognier for complexity, given a little skin contact and 10 months in neutral oak with...
