Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

Just a lovely, lovely nose of pear and melon and apple and green orange and there's that wintergreen scent again which i am beginning to suspect might come from the wood. The palate is rich and dense, of white fruit and herbs. This is quite reserved, but very chalky, very direct. It's an upright wine of spicy/peppery through-put. Great presence in the mouth. Superb, busy, mineral wine with fabulous lemon tension at the back. Bowes Wine original note

"...shows that Chablis can be taken as seriously as any top burgundy. Still very young, and will go on to even greater things." Richard Hemming MW

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
