"Unbroken sun through August and early September helped to shape an idyllic harvest, on 12th September. Superb maturity of fruit in flawless health has produced a wine with wafting scents of both fresh and confit of spiced lemon and wild cherry. Despite the heat, the wine has freshness, vitality and length. Still a youngster, this will grow greatly by 2019. A more stylish son of the '03, and cousin of the slender and charming '06. Disgorged June 2016." /100 Tasted by Michael Edwards for Decanter(at The Berkeley, London, 25 May 2017)
This impressive blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir has a backbone of crisp, lemony acidity which should see it through the next decade and beyond as it ages in the bottle.
