    June 29, 2019 - Less giving on the nose than the Cuvée D. Some sharp yeasty breadiness.
    Very pure on the palate, with a lovely freshness. Really precise and focused. Though curiously the acidity actually feels quite low.

    November 28, 2017 - Very fresh citrus nose, grapefruit and faint lemon, acacia flowers, faint balanced almond, and yeast. Palate is light, but with faint apricot. Good length. Not obviously acidic. But light. 2010 base year. 2gm dosage.

    It's the nose that makes this wine more interesting than the cuvee D

    November 9, 2013 - The 60% Pinot Noir/40% Chardonnay mix gives this a bready flavour with some lemon bite. The ‘Collection D’ shows off the best of Devaux production and this is a respectable offering. Lengthy time on the lees grants it a more substantial body than the average Grand Marques.

    May 7, 2010 - Simple friday night (Lee Kui Ah Hoi): Still deeply flavoured with deep lemon flavours, breadiness and some oily butteriness. Stil rich.
