"Honeysuckle plus tangerine fruit and peel show on the nose of this concentrated, citrus-scented wine. Gentle sweetness adds juicy peach to the midpalate. The off-dry finish is beautifully balanced and zesty."
"Heady, floral, rich – tastes as though there’s a fair charge of residual sugar here (15.9 g/l apparently). And quite a bit of alcohol. But it’s a very faithful rendition of the grape and should age nicely. 17/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Organic and Biodynamic (certified by Ecocert & Demeter). The grapes used in this wine come from vines planted in the estate vineyard, Clos des Capuchins. The resulting wines are rich, velvety, rose-scented, exotic, and spicy and represent the very finest expression of the grape. Older vines in our monopole Clos des Capucins vineyard, which is composed of sandy silt soil on granite pebbles. The grapes growing in this terroir ripen much earlier, producing wines with complex aromatics and a powerful concentration. Tasting Note: Reveals fine notes of roses and white tea, with a hint of pink pepper for vivacity. Though closer to dry, the natural sweetness of the grape gives body to the wine to give a juicy impression mid-palate and a longlasting finish. Food Pairing: A classic with spicy Asian cuisine such as Pad Thai, Shrimp Spring Rolls with chili sauce, or a Calamari Salad. This wine also pairs perfectly with smoked salmon.
