Lea & Sandeman review
The last bottling of the year is usually the best, and this is no exception, tasting absolutely brilliant now. A full flavoured muscular wine from classic 'silex' (silica) soils, not as overtly Sauvignony as those grown on the chalk soils to the west, nor as firmly dry as the wines from the limestone of Bué. A perfect balance of fruit and firm minerality. This wine is composed of vines with an average age of 30-35 years. Thanks to a diversity of soils types, principally flint and limestone and a strict blending of wines from 28 plots, which adds finesse, aromatic complexity and minerality to this wine.
Sorry, not all bottle sizes of this product are in stock in our warehouse. However, we may have some bottles in one of our shops - why not give one of them a call?
