"This is their drink-young wine. Chalk powder and clouds of florals. A wine that smells like walking through an English orchard in early May. White pears, sweet dill, matcha powder, kerned yogurt, lemon zest – slender, piercing, focused. Breathtaking freshness. Like a plunge in a cold pebbled stream. Almost like licking limestone! Beautiful acidity, like a thousand tiny glass shafts; complex, many-sided, light refracting. Sébastien Danjou says, 'drink this young – it can age, but it’s made to be drunk young'. I’m already thinking celeriac remoulade and lemon-thyme grilled chicken thighs or pork medallions…" - 17 points, Tamlyn Currin for
