Notes of red and black fruit perfectly accompanied by a light touch of oak. Clean attack, full in the mouth, with elegant, tightly-knit tannins, and a pleasant, lingering finish.
Under the same ownership as Chateau Garraud - Leon Nony.
Producer note: Chateau Treytins
Since 1997, the 3 hectare vineyard of Château Treytins has produced a Montagne Saint-Emilion wine from grapes grown on gravely soil located in part on a hillside. Average vine age is 25 years. They use traditional Double Guyod pruning with bud removal. They also implement leaf removal and crop thinning when necessary. Harvesting at full maturity in part by hand, the grapes are sorted manually on a vibrated table. The wine is aged for 18 months, 80% in oak barrels.

Brut Reserve, , Charles Heidsieck, £45.00 France, White
Triple gold-medal winner 2012: Gold IWC, Trophy DWWA, Gold IWSC
Class and sophistication are what Heidsieck embodies. Complex pastry aromas, with an opulent combination of ripe apricot, mango and greengages, dried fruits, pistachio and almond. The palate begins with a silky smooth sensation, developing into ripe fleshy apricot, melon and enticing plum pastry notes and delicate spice. A perfect balance of freshness and generosity.
Brut Vintage, 2009, Henners, £30.50 England, White
Biscuity, brioche aromas, with delicate white flower and full fruit. Flavours are fresh with nicely delicate citrus and apple with a 'lees' character adding complexity.
