Tasting notes


Henri Bourgeois, one of the Loire's most noted producers, started his Kiwi operation in 2003. Five years on and this 2008 is expressive yet restrained, with a mineral core couched in nettley, gooseberry fruit, evolving to reveal lime, apple, herbs and rhubarb. Zest, vitality and lots of class. (17 points) £18.50
