Some pretty depth of fruit and dried-pineapple character. Sliced apples, too. Full-bodied, round and juicy.
The 2017 Clos Marsalette Blanc was picked on 13 September and at just 7hl/ha due to frost, only 1,000 bottles will be produced. It actually has a lively bouquet with lemon, thyme, citrus peel and Granny Smith apple aromas. The palate is well balanced with a little fatness on the entry, veins of stem ginger and pineapple chunks, leading to a harmonious finish that will be difficult to resist in its youth.
The 2017 Clos Marsalette Blanc is a pretty, supple white to drink over the near and medium term. There is plenty of richness, but ideally there could be a little more freshness. Yields are down a punishing 90%. The blend is 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon.
Creamy lemon and grapefruit and a light, attractive stony quality. Just a touch of pear drops. Marked citrus on the palate but a bit like boiled sweets (hard candy), ie slightly artificial on the palate. Smells very young – cool ferment giving pear drops? (JH)
