Tasting notes


With fruit sourced from the grounds of an 18th century château and named after an extinct beast, this is a vibrant, alive beauty. A fusion of barrel-fermented Chardonnay and Sauvignon with Gros and Petit Mansengs, it's packed with tangy grapefruit, apple and minerals, with a rounded texture and floral decoration. Alc: 12.5%. (17.5 points)
