VIGNERON GEORGE HEYDON’S COMMENTS
A medium straw colour, tinged with green.
The bright, complex nose opens with our characteristic rich tropical fruits, including nectarine, guava, citrus and honeydew melon.
Nutty characters of almond meal and pistachio, with a hint of vanilla bean, add to the complexity.
The intense palate shows all the minerality, weight, majestic oak, citrus zest and length redolent of classic White Burgundy.
The fruit was handpicked on 24th February 2008.
Fruit was whole bunch pressed and fermented in barrel, with wild, indigenous natural yeast strains. Battonage for 2 months. 10% was allowed to undergo malolactic ferment providing textural complexity.
Maturation for 10 months in 100% French oak barrels, 50% new and 50% second use.
