He awarded it 92 points and "best import" status.
The colour is medium to full yellow and the bouquet evokes citrus blossom, honeysuckle and many other appealing fragrances. The palate is delicate, seamless and gently fruity, with a trace of sweetness early, then a clean, dry finish, with balanced acidity. It’s a lovely wine but drink it soon because the synthetic stopper is not designed for cellaring. 13 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Internationally, demand for this particular wine has been outstripping supply, but late last year we secured stock of this vintage.
Pleasingly we have also received an allocation of the next vintage (2012), which won the regional trophy for south-west France at the Decanter world wine awards. We are confident that for the next 2 years at least, DiscoverVin will have a consisitently high quality good value product to supply.
This is a fantastically priced authentic wine from an independent producer in one of the worlds oldest wine regions.
