Parcels, many in the form of whole bunches, are crushed and pressed, with a view to building complexity within the finished wine. Half the juices are run straight to barrel for inoculation by yeast CY3079 in a combination of new and prior use French oaks, the balance is vinified in fermenters, aimed at retaining freshness and vitality to match the length and textural richness of barrel treatments. After a fortnight, batches are filled to a selection of Francois Freres, Mercurey, Sirugue and Seguin Moreau seasoned and new oak barriques and puncheons for ten months lees maturation.
Ripe pale yellow hue. Grapefruit and lemon zest aromas before underlying notes of cashew. The palate shows a creamy yet fine texture derived from time on lees. A lovely drive with persistence of flavour, elegant complexity and appealing freshness. A wholly integrated palate of ripe fruit restrained by the fine structure, French oak contributes an added dimension, delicately on the finish.
