    December 30, 2020 - Unique chard. Nose is different and wonderful.

    October 17, 2020 - Vertical tasting. Here is the ‘16, drunk alongside the ‘17. The fruit is significantly more pronounced in the ‘16, along with the caramel characteristic, while the acid and minerality are softener.

    November 25, 2019 - Acrodyn - Domaine de la Côte Trade Tasting with Rajat Parr: Clear, pale lemon. Obvious oaked aromas, nutmeg and cinnamon, and ripe sweetish pineapples. Similar spices and honeyed pineapple flavours on the palate. Straightforward though, and disappeared quickly

    November 24, 2019 - Medium golden in the glass. Beauuuutiful nose with heaps of diversity - tropical, candied fruit, green apple, white flowers, vanilla, caramel, brioche. Full-bodied, but not tired and smothered with the oak. Superb acidity that keeps this energetic as fuck. Long, creamy finish with a retronasal acid wrapping things up perfectly. Top-notch quality right here folks.
