The Tête d’Or comes from selected parcels advantageously sited near to premier and grand cru sites, given just a whisper of oak. Fresh, light and flowery aromas draw the drinker in to this graceful wine, and continue to charm on the palate. The wine’s stony finesse slowly amplifies towards the finish, and it has textural pleasure as well as the pale flame of its roundly acid flavours. Drinking Window 2018 - 2022

Ripe, fruit-driven scents of yellow stone fruits and orange zest. A step up in sweetness and texture over the basic village wine, showing a gingery oak quality that's neither dominant nor drying. Good energy and underlying minerality here. Finishes spicy and persistent.- ST
