The 2007 vintage proved difficult to produce. After a wet and mild winter, the April sunshine got the vegetative cycle going quickly and the warm weather made us think a precocious harvest was on the cards. However throughout May and July the temperature dropped, and slowed everything down: the 15 day advantage gained in the spring was progressively eaten away by the cool summer, and had disappeared by the end of August. The vintage was ultimately saved by miraculous autumn sunshine.

« Tasted at the UGC in London. Good mineralite on the nose, touches of flint, smoke and almond, good vigour with a faint dried pineapple note that gains intensity with time. The palate is well balanced, fresh and a daisy with lovely lime and gooseberry notes on the vibrant finish. Very youthful, but great potential. Drink now-2017. Tasted November 2009. »
