Château Pierre-Bise Quarts de Chaume 2016


The top cuvée. One for the purist terroirists rather than the hedonists. The finished blend is almost 100% botrytised fruit and has residual sugar of 175 g/l. The nose is admirably high-toned and full of toasted-honeyed nuts, with a bed of grilled and dried berry fruits. The palate shows great substance and polish, with a velvety, creamed-fruit texture, polished and weighty, cut through by a fresh acid bite. This is imposing, textural, majestic even, with tangible weight and an impressive length. It remains fresh throughout, though, and it retains a sense of purity. An excellent cuvée and an absolute must for the cellar.

Château Pierre-Bise Coteaux du Layon – Beaulieu Les Rouannières 2018


100% Chenin Blanc, the Rouannieres is made in 50% stainless steel tank and 50% old oak barrels. Aromatically it present an array of nicely concentrated and dried fruits, with a little caramelisation wrapped around the edges. The palate feels pure, concentrated as suggested by the nose, but also tense and correct, with a lovely balance of caramelised orchard fruits, praline and toasted nuts on one side, countered by delightfully fresh acidity on the other, giving it a very fine sense of poise. Very impressive, deliciously balanced, long and pithy with phenolic energy in the finish.

Domaine Marcel Deiss Burg 2015


Burg is one of Deiss’ most prized terroirs, with its south-facing aspect and multi-coloured Keuper marls and rare limestone insertions. Mainly planted with Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Muscat and Gerwürztraminer, Burg is a robust wine, complex and structured, with great ageing potential. The fruit is fermented in barrels using indigenous yeasts, and the wine is then matured in oak barrels on fine lees for 12 months. Each of these highly aromatic varieties gives the wine its extraordinary complexity and spiced notes with a hint of citrus peel. It makes an exquisite pairing with exotic, spiced dishes.
