An incredible perfume of honeysuckle, yogurt, ripe lemon, white blossom, with a very rounded palate framed by a gentle acidity. Something about this wine makes you want to revisit it over and over again.

Light notes of kerosene on the nose with lemon and nutmeg. Very dry, high acid and very tense on the palate - still dominated with primary characteristics, barely feels aged. Perhaps not my most favourite style but nevertheless good quality.

Beautiful field blend, pine needles, pineapples and white flowers on the nose. Very long finish and constant intrigue. Love this wine.

Extremely rich, dominant caramel and ripe stewed fruits, definitely indicative of the hot year. Took a while to open up, very big wine.

Aged beautifully. Bramble and violets, black Plum and blackberry, leather, tomato leaf. Silky tannin and medium + finish. Could possibly last another 5 years.

Very refined tannin with good depth and structure, filled with black cherries, plums and a fine acidity. Floral and spicy notes that are likely to contribute to an overall excellent wine in 10+ years. Although still too young to see its full potential, we can certainly catch a glimpse of it now.

Young tannin leads to this wine feeling slightly more drying on the palate, but not too abrasive thanks to the somewhat concentrated (but not as much as typical New World) black and red plum/cherry fruit, as well as spice from the oak that is in the backdrop of the wine. Needs much more time to age, but would improve significantly in +10y.

Required decanting for +1h to open up more. Medium(+) notes of leather, mushroom and hay which blew off the top to reveal more elegant fragrances of violets and black plum, black cherry. Finish was long, and structure was well integrated with softened tannins and an acidity that still held the wine in one piece. Wouldn't have let this age for much longer. Very high quality wine, but not as enveloping as I might have hoped in comparison with better vintages.

I think this was cooked, or at least I hope it was because it was undrinkable - no acid, jammy and over-sweet fruit, no structure.

Incredibly impressed by the quality of this wine with regards to its cost. I would describe it as a midway point between a cooler Old World style and a warmer New World style of SB: with a crisp acidity, very light note of capsicum/grass with hints of lemon, peach, passionfruit, and white flowers. Not overtly aromatic as some styles can be. Surprisingly long finish, and very well balanced. Works very well on its own but could be paired well with food, possibly seafood/oysters.

Very unique and rich wine, a strong minerality on the palate with aromas and flavours of orange peel, pith, earth. Could have left it longer in the cellar.

On the more elegant end of a New World Pinot Noir, nevertheless with robust and drying tannin and black fruit aromas. A hint of stemminess on the end palate, with good acid structure. Not hugely memorable as a Pinot Noir, but not bad.

Lovely nose – most likely indicative of younger oak i.e. crème brulée and vanilla. Bright red cherry and cloves, with good acid structure and fine tannins on the palate. I think this wine could develop and reveal more exciting features in 5y.

Closed on opening, light notes of smoky oak and black cherry. Required an hour to open up more, revealing a totally dry and fine acid structure holding together more subtle cherry and cranberry on the palate. Definitely too young i.e. quite restrained on the nose and palate with what I think is plenty more potential, would like to see about 10y on this wine. Great value for a 1er Cru.

First experience of a Trousseau. Surprisingly aromatic and floral, very pale ruby. Red plum with cassis and a hint of spice.

Fresh and unique, drink lightly chilled so that subtle fruit character balances with phenolics and slight bitterness on the after palate. On the nose, medium(-) honeysuckle, white peach. Would have liked to see a little more fruit concentration, but still loved this wine.
White - Sweet/Dessert

Lovely and delicate dessert wine – not overtly sweet, with good acidity and notes of honey, citrus peel, and dried apricots. Medium finish.

Distinctive age on the nose, particularly honeyed with some baking spices and nuts (hazelnut?). The palate is rich with some discernible oak and notes of pineapple, ripe apples, honey and nuts. Acid is very well integrated, harder to discern amongst the overall high concentration of flavour as well as a creaminess. Dry with a very long finish.

A nose reminiscent of an apple and cinnamon pie, with baked grannysmiths and citrus on the palate and white flowers and honeysuckle on the nose. High acid and minerality that is well integrated into good fruit concentration and long length.

Crisp grannysmith apple and honeysuckle on the nose and palate, with a hint of lemon, cinnamon spice and pear. Dry with a short finish, and still quite young while very refreshing.

My first experience of a Savagnin of Jura. The nose is distinctive with notes of marzipan and honey, complimented by hazelnut on the dry palate and a long length structured by medium acidity and hints of lemon pith. A great introduction to the Jura region.
