WINE REVIEW

Much like the rosé, winemaker Jonathan Médard has allowed the purity of this 100% Chardonnay Blanc de Blancs to shout out thanks to its modest dosage of 4g/l.

The journey begins with a fresh, pure nose of green orchard fruit and crisp citrus, seasoned with hints of mineral, honeysuckle and ripe apricot.

A lively, crisp palate awaits with a zesty lemon tart zing before a lightly honeyed stone fruit character sets in.

I love the poise and confidence, it’s a hugely distinctive wine, yet it retains a beautiful air of elegance. The minerality and bright, pure fruit flavours are extracted with clarity and precision.
