- The Wine
This Marsanne was the best I found in 2013 in the Valais - and as I love Marsanne, I could not resist.
Ben says (December 2016): This is pure class. Scents of incense and honey mingle with hints of lychee and loam. It would make a very good perfume! In the mouth there is no hint of sweetness but vanilla does come through with some vegetal notes and green stone fruits. There is a spiciness, especially in the finish, which may be nutmeg but is quite elusive. Regardless of this, the wine is beautifully balanced and a real treat.
Ben says (February 2018): Please be aware that the 2009 is starting to throw a sediment. It is nothing to worry about but means that careful decanting should precede enjoyable drinking!
