No Pinot Noir in the blend this year due to frost. It’s a quarter Chardonnay and three quarters Gamay. Fermented utilising the flottaison method, a variation of carbonic maceration. Whole Gamay berries are placed in a vat and instead of air surrounding the wine, Chardonnay is pressed into the same vat. It is then sealed off as one would when carrying out carbonic maceration. Tasting Note: The nose has an incredibly and beautifully defined reduction that looks like lavender. Slightly unripe red cherry, red currant, lavender, fresh mountain air and a lick of pleasing purple fruit. The palate is succulent with a lime juice line of acidity that holds the beautifully sweet, perfumed fruit. There is a dried raspberry character that lifts from the palate through the olfactory which is encapsulating. - Jono Hersey, FWC

Pre Arrival Offer

We embrace the classic and historic 'en Primeur' system. It originated in Bordeaux and translates directly to 'of the first'. While in Bordeaux it gives the ability to a buyer to purchase the wine still in barrel, at The French Wine Centre it enables our clients to secure their preferred wines a month or two before the wine arrives on our shores. There is also a significant saving.
