Pale yellow with orange reflections. Nose of fresh apple, buttery notes and a dry minerality. Completely dry and cleansing; a touch of rancio adds character to the mouthfeel. Clean finish and ready to drink. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir plus small amounts of Poulsard and Trousseau.
Medium straw colour with a minerally, peachy nose lifted by a floral note; medium- to full-bodied, dry, fragrant peach and apple flavours with a lovely mouthfeel.
Gewürztraminer is rather like cilantro – you either love it or hate it. I happen to love both and even together. This Gewürz is bright straw in colour with the quintessential aromatic bouquet of the grape ― lychee and rosewater. Full-bodied and off-dry; round on the palate with mouth-filling lychee and sweet grapefruit flavours.
Signature green apple and distinctive hazelnut on the nose carries through with fresh, smoothly rounded green apple flavour on the palate. Apple fruit and a touch of hazelnut persist on the finish. A solid Chablis from a fine vintage.
Medium straw in colour; herbaceous, grapefruit and lime bouquet with a light floral lift; medium-bodied, dry, elegant, green plum and cut grass flavours that linger long on the palate.
Eric Texier is a leading natural and biodynamic vigneron in the Rhone, renewing and reviving the tiny Brézème appellation in North, as well as acting as négociant for other sites in the Rhône and Mâconnais. Adèle is mostly Clairette, aided by Marsanne, on granitic soils; it is whole-cluster pressed, fermented wild in cement and spends 8 months on the lees before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Subtle and nonchalant, with delicate apricot, apple, pear scenting a palate of stones, quiet anise, wild herbs and hay. The briskly refreshing finish reminds you of the naturalism of this smashable, light/medium-bodied wine.
