Dynamite aromas! Literally and figuratively. An impression of fractured rock. Chalky drill bits. Then the fruit comes through and it’s frosty winter fruits at first, all nervy and steely, but it then unfurls a little showing youthful white-fleshed fruits before unfurling once again to reveal a dash of honeysuckle nectar that brings a tender succulence to the zippier fruits. Great tension and backbone on the palate thanks to the classic trinity of acidity, minerality and fruit intensity. It’s more concentrated than the ‘Silex’, yet still satisfyingly dry and mouthwatering showing zesty lemongrass, green peppercorns, nettles and lime and we noted a little bit of grip to the texture, which can be attributed to the wealth of dry extract (the tasty stuff from the skins left behind after fermentation). Exemplary Pouilly-Fumé. 13% alc. Drink now-2025.

The Wine Enthusiast: “This wine comes from a four-acre parcel of stony soil. Closed and tight as is typical of young Pouilly Fumé, it promises rich white fruits for the future. Ripe and well structured, it will be ready to drink from 2020.” - Editor’s Choice Award
