The Wines

100% Marsanne from Chabot at Tournon, southern zone, 1-2 day cooling of crop, 600-litre oak cask fermented, wild yeasts, raised 8 months, lees stirred 5 weeks


yellow robe with a little depth. Has a reserved nose with the potential to come out and vary, put on a good show. There is a convincing oily depth to it, with an aroma of crème patisserie. The palate bears fluid white fruit, with an almond, honey seasoning in the flavour. It is smoothly textured, is quite a streamlined wine all round. 13°. 2020-21  GB £93/6b bots in bond The Wine Society +441438 740 222 www.thewinesociety.com  Jan 2015


low-key, rich yellow colour. The bouquet is interesting – combines ginger, orange, Bergamot, white tobacco – has an appealing and authentic tang that is truly Marsanne. Has a carbonic gas, near spritz debut on the palate, so that drives through its orange marmalade, stewed fruits flavour. It isn’t totally fused as a result between its richness and freshness. Fundamentally this is rich. Suited to dishes such as sauced foods, traditional cooking. Decant this. From mid-2014. 13.5°. 2019-20  Nov 2013
