The stylish, chablis-like elegance of this wine made it an absolute showstopper for me.  I love the purity of fruit, intense citrus and minerality on the mid-palate, its peachy backbone and the dusting of subtle nutty notes on the finish.  It’s a beautifully balanced example that will leave you shaking your head in a state of yumness.  Grown in mineralised clay soils rich in iron and manganese oxides over ancient weathered rock.
Sip with: chicken and leek pie.
