'...M.Chapoutier is the maker of "my wines". I get to say things like that now. Quite simple, these are two of most enjoyable wines I've put in my gob all year...] It has a lovely perfume, it's juicy with a suggestion of apricot and baked apple but it's not too forward. It has a nice acidity, and will match a host of different foods.'. » Ben Knight, Melbourne Weekly
