Tasting Notes:
Pascal Verhaeghe describes this as a winemaker's dream and it's easy to understand why. Everything is in place: a nose that makes you want to dive in and hold back at the same time (this reminds me of the scene in Gregory's Girl where Gregory's sister is explaining her love of salt and vinegar crisps) and when you do give in, the flavours and mouthfeel are almost overwhelming. Words simply cannot do this wine justice.

This wine is now in the bottle and in the UK. Anyone who reads my blog will know how important textures are to me and this wine is worth the premium for the incredibly smooth and rounded mouthfeel. Stunning.
