Described as ‘a typical coastal Chardy’, the distinctive 2019 vintage (5*) was hand-picked and fermented and lees-aged for 10 months in French oak barriques (40 per cent new). Bright, light lemon/green, with a fragrant, complex bouquet, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with concentrated, ripe, peachy, citrusy flavours and a lasting finish. Showing excellent personality, it’s well worth cellaring.
