Fresh on the nose with touch of white flowers and lemon, there’s a bit of grass on the attack and a lively finish with hints of quinine and lime. On the palate it is full, expressing subtle notes of white flowers and a stunning crystal purity, with noticeable bitter almonds towards the finish. It’s pretty serious for the price, and the wine (in its youth) opens up beautifully over a couple of days.
This is a négoce cuvée from Brice Omont. It comes from organically farmed 50-60yo vines on limestone scree and clay limestone soils in Apremont, fermented and aged in fibreglass vats for 9 months, and bottled with just 20mg/l of sulphur.

Try this with Linconlshire Poacher - an english alpine style cheese.
