Even better - benefits from a night in the decanter
Drink Can be drunk now, but will age for a further 5 years
The nose is beautifully high-toned, prickly, fruity, lemon/limey, with an abundance of fresh herbs on the nose, a hint of granny smith and clove, orange pith and a whole load of minerality. Beautifully light on the palate, too, but no less flavoursome - delicious flavours of herb and spice-infused apple, peach and soft citrus abound, with wonderful grip, succulent acidity and no sign of the pithy, slightly bitter flavours that can often be found in Provencal/southern Rhone whites. It really is gloriously fresh, fruity, herby and - once again - winey. The finish is tangy and mouth-watering and keeps you coming back for more. Furthermore, it really does benefit from a night in the decanter, becoming richer and more complex with plenty of air. Delicious, but will it age? I think so, but whether you want to drink it now, or keep it for a few years, you are onto a winner!
Gault & Millau - "What freshness..... wonderful wine, of an easy nature, although powerful. 17/20."
Was £17.80. Bin-End price £14.95. More than a dozen bottles left.

Price:  £14.95 (Including: VAT at 20%)
