The Wines

1996 Roussanne from La Croix, fermented, raised used 228-litre oak cask 12 months, malo completed, 304 b


shiny yellow robe. Has a graceful, round, white fruit jelly, guava, peach assembly of aromas, with smoke, gunflint and spice. This is stylish, runs with clear white fruits, apricot and white strawberry. It builds tannin and cut as it goes. The palate is dentelle, salted, proceeds with no false steps, is notably pure and very natural. There are pate of quince (paste) and smoked notes, and it is a wine with its own character, not conformist. 13°. Bottled 5 Sept 2015. 2029-31  Dec 2015
