The iconic Belle Epoque bottle reveals a well-structured, taut wine. With Chardonnay very much in evidence in the mineral texture, the wine is almost as floral as the bottle.
Creamy lemon notes have a distant whiff of vanilla, but more air also reveals chalky, stony depth. The body is slender but comes with well-rounded richness, hinting at its rich autolysis with toasty notes. Lemon oil sets a citrus note that expands alongside the rich, yeasty sonorousness. The creamy finish is almost mellow. Drinking Window 2020 - 2028
A pale, translucent gold, with radiant clarity and subtle glints of apple green. Distinctive notes of white flowers combine with white peaches, crisp pears and lemon. Freshness prevails, releasing a beautiful harmony.
