Tasting Note

Masterfully understated and nuanced on the nose, with citrus and greengage, sesame oil, flint and a suggestion of oak. Fresh and zesty in the mouth, with a richness that gradually builds on the palate. This is great to drink now, and it will gain further roundness and complexity over the next 3-5 years. Delicious!

Customer Reviews

  • Fabulous refinement

    We enjoyed a bottle of this over three successive nights (an exercise in masterful restraint). It starts out lean and somewhat Chablis-like; over time gradually broadening and showing ever-so-subtle nuances of cream and toasted oak. This is a seriously classy Chardonnay for the money and I anticipate that it would develop nicely in the bottle over 4-5 years, if you have the patience.
