"A very elegant white Burgundy with lovely pure, crisp Chardonnay fruits and fresh acidity. the oak is well hidden if it is there. Lovely wine to drink with a variety of fish or chicken dishes."John Wilson, Irish Times Wines of the Year."One for those who like the smoky, vanilla flavours of new oak, combined here with some classy, rich, concentrated apple fruits and very good length."

Winemaker

Roger Saumaize - Michelen

"Roger is the winemaker and on meeting him one is as likely to think him a crazed artist as anything else. Passionate rants about biodynamics (an energy based approach to organic farming which he practices) or various wine techniques are illuminated by wild hand gestures and contorted expressions. As he showed us around his beautiful old winery, one couldn’t help but notice that this was a man at one with nature and proud of his craft. This is wine made at nature's pace. Grapes are handpicked and sorted and the press is a gentle, slow process. Wines are usually fermented in oak and aged for a year before bottling but he was keen to point out that he lets the wine dictate how and where it is fermented and matured. It’s as if he makes wine by feel, an intuitive approach that is refreshing in a world of industrial systems."
