Pale orange. Fresh redcurrant and tangerine aromas are complemented by talc and allspice, with a seductive floral quality building in the glass. Lively and focused on the palate, displaying nervy citrus and red berry flavors and an undercurrent of chalky minerals. Finishes with very good clarity, grip and tangy persistence, the red fruit and mineral notes repeating.

Fresh and aromatic, with an overtone of orchard blossom to flavors of black cherry candy, gumdrop, pound cake and fresh ginger. Offers a clean, minerally finish. Drink now through 2017. 85,000 cases made.

Dry and crisp, this is a delicious rosé that has both ripe fruit and a tight line of acidity. Its red fruits are laced with fresh citrus character and an underlying touch of toast. This is a bottling that can improve with age, but is great now.

There’s a dark, umami richness to this wine, bringing to mind sautéed wild mushrooms and veal stock. There’s also a flinty edge wiring it tight. Vinous and dry, this is built for rillettes.
