Peach dough, dried green pears, preserved lemons, bread crust and croutons. Very clear-cut on the medium-bodied palate with cutting acidity and a wonderful complement of savory stone and citrus fruit. Drink now.

100% pure Chardonnay sourced from 5 villages around Champagne, the Quintette is quintessentially refined. Honeycomb, apple blossom, gunsmoke, toastiness, kumquat zest and raw sourdough on the nose and a combination of rich flavours and zippy acidity on the palate.Ripe apples and peaches, juicy lemons, baked white bread, toasted almonds, grilled pine nuts, vanilla, with clean and fresh acidity that balances the fullness beautifully. The wine was initially vinified in 50% oak and 50% stainless steel and has had no fining or filtration before secondary fermentation which shows in that nervy tension found in the glass.
With only 5040 bottles produced, this is one to tuck away in the cellar and open a bottle every now and then to really appreciate the slow, long development that this has ahead of it. 95 points.
