Tasting Notes: Very bright, polished platinum with green, vivacious hue. Complex, appealing nose with pear, citrus and floral notes developing into lemon cream, oatmeal and marzipan richness.
*Immediate Delivery* Always an appealing and very classic style of Meursault with hints of honey, quince, mango and fresh double cream. Despite its ripe exotic fruit character, it has a balancing freshness providing drive and energy. A very rewarding wine.
From hand-harvested grapes from Agly Valley, some from late ripening vineyards planted at 500m above sea level.
A tight, mineral wine with classic Hamilton Russell Vineyards length and complexity. Prominent pear and lime fruit aromas and flavours are brought beautifully into focus by a tight line of bright natural acid and a long, dry minerality. An elegant, yet textured and intense wine with a strong personality of both place and vintage.
A pleasing balance between weight and freshness. Good tension and restrained fruit, promising characteristics in a wine during this sunny vintage. Perfect with shellfish and molluscs, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces, goat's cheeses and hard cow's milk cheeses.
