CHETEAU CLIMENS ASPHODELE 2019
Made in collaboration with Pascal Jolivet, from Sancerre, this dry white from Chateau Climens vineyard has a very distinct
personality, making it different from any other wine of the region.
The palate impresses with a little polish to the texture at the very start, bringing with it a phenolic drive and fresh acidity, all of which is maintained through the midpalate as balance and drive.
Towards the finish it takes on a little waxy note as well, a contrast against the increasingly crystalline fruit, and combined with a touch of bitterness it adds something delightfully intriguing to the whole.
Cool and driven, overall this is fine for drinking now, but I imagine in five years time it will be a much greater experience. If you can resist the temptation to pull the cork now, that is.
