40% whole cluster, from vines ages 20-65, this was tasted just before the Volnay 1er Cailleret. What a warm up….this was incredibly lovely and fine. Such a charming wine, Thomas nailed the balance here of fruit and structure. Value hounds, you’ve been warned.
“40% whole bunches. Lifted and spicy. White pepper, and mandarin zest; a more complex note from the whole bunch. This is succulent and juicy, rounded and generous; A spicy note to the palate too. Full and ripe, very ripe aromatics on the finish too. This is very accessible. It works well in this vintage. Good on-trade wine. Sweet and expressive. In a warm vintage this can be a bit jammy, but in this vintage and some whole bunch it works well..the whole bunch stretches the finish and fresher. Top notch Reversee. Score 17.75. ” -Sarah Marsh
