1st of 12. Rich and silky mellow plum fruit with some smoky tobacco and some undergrowth. Medium bodied and nice balance, some acidity on finish but balanced by the fruit. 4/5

2nd or 12. Deep gold. Honey, orange and nutty caramel with a lemon acidity. Medium sweet but still a desert wine rather than aperitif and some botrytis. 4/5

    A difficult growing season that even saw snow for two days on the 7th and 8th May, followed by rains through to the middle of July. The summer arrived late with June being very wet, but the weather was then glorious. The harvest was conducted over two separate periods: the first, in September, requiring a derogation from the authorities. The picking stopped between the first week of October and the 13th, but then continued in glorious conditions right through until the end of the month. The yields averaged 28hl/ha and they were able to produce some very good, high acid, base wine for sparkling, plus a full range of sec, demi-sec and moëlleux, the latter produced only botrytis affected fruit. These wines are drinking well now, but will continue to develop.
