The grapes are sourced from seven different parcels ('clos') in the commune of Morogues, all planted in Kimmeridgian limestone-clay marl soil. You'll notice aromas of ripe white peach and blackcurrant leaf with hints of super-ripe fruit and lime juice. The palate has lots of refreshing citrus zest, nettle and grassy characters, lovely minerality and a slightly creamy honeyed finish. Refreshing acidity and a good balance. After the challenges of the 2016 harvest Pelle are back with aplomb with this 2017 corker. Serve nicely chilled before or at the beginning of a meal but also with shellfish or delicate white fish, especially with a creamy parsley or dill sauce.
