✔ 10% When purchasing 12 or more bottles
This new domaine impresses us with an ecologically responsible ethos and mouth watering wines perfect for entertaining.
This white wine made next door to Auxerre from the Sauvignon grape is often the colour of pale straw or light gold. Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with sometimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years.
Young Lavallee farms of 5.5 hectares without relying on chemicals (managaed by Clement and his Sister Caroline).
Not easy work in a region known for persnickety weather.
We're excited to have some of their wine to share, because it's pristine and food friendly.
If you haven't had a chance to try these wines, this bottle is the perfect entry door.
Very limited quantities.
