Blimey, exactly the same here Tom, albeit from an Alsace mixed case when TWS first offered it. I’d have opened the same myself tomorrow if Waitrose had any king scallops but no, damn ! Anyway, I’m really grateful for your notes
@GWills , once again thanks for your notes, yours too is part of a mixed case that remains in reserve. Hmm, and something that may change soon now !
Here tonight with an iberico pork steak, roasted veg, and steamed new potatoes with butter, parmesan and chives ( a totally inappropriate exercise in using up stuff left from midweek )…
…for starters I had no idea that the label name was actually an appellation !
Unoaked but lees aged. TWS notes mentioned baked apples. I’d go further as it smells like apple pie to me. Baked green apples, citrus and a lovely lees-y freshness on tasting. Medium bodied, nothing complex but it’s so balanced and harmonious that the components add up to more than the sum of their parts. A really pleasurable wine that doesn’t require too much thought but is disappearing all too quickly here. Really good VFM ( £10.50 ) too.
Have a great weekend everyone !
