(100% Marsanne) Initially suggestive more of Burgundy than the Rhône on account of its subtly smoky notes and firm underpinning of acidity, with air this wine blossoms beautifully to display a succulent, apricot palate. Fermented and aged in four-year-old Vosges barrels, it is a remarkably intelligent synthesis of Burgundian technique and Rhône character. An original.
