This Bordeaux-style white offers harmoniously balanced, subtly articulated flavours. Soft, rounded and refined, it has traces of the unexpected, like fig leaves on the nose and the merest hint of elderflower. This complexity of flavours comes from very selective sourcing and attention to detail. The presence of oak is a barely-there sensation, on the nose rather than the palate. This stirs yet more complexity into its wonderful creaminess. While already intriguingly complex, the 2017 vintage promises to become increasingly layered over the coming years and will show best at 5 – 8 years after harvest.
