Impressively rich chenin with sliced dried-peach, pineapple and lanolin aromas and flavors. It’s fullbodied, dense and lightly phenolic, yet remains spicy and minerally with a vivid finish. Drink or hold.

Bright yellow colour with golden hue. Opulent nose with distinct oak influence, vanilla, toasted brioche, hazelnuts, rich aroma reminiscent of candied Williams pear, dried pineapple, candied lemon zest, ripe Cavaillon melon. Developing a wonderful aroma of Tarte Tatin. On the palate well balanced with smooth character, creamy texture, flavour reminiscent of ripe yellow stone fruit and hints of toasted brioche. A wine which is on one side characterised by the distinct oak influence, yet displays an interesting tension in the finish.

A pretty white with sliced-apple and honey character. Some pineapple and peach, too. It’s full-bodied with a waxy undertone and a flavorful finish. Dense and focused. Always very serious. Only about 2,700 bottles made. Drink now.

Jasmine, elderflower, pear, sliced apple and beeswax on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with waxy, supple and floral character. Mineral and stony undertones. Plenty of char-acter. Drink now.
