Caze Thibaut Les Leriens 2016
Gushing nose with plenty of richness and this underlying complexity and salinity. The first sip is surprisingly delicate and then this brilliance of fruit, almost chewy, alongside a sweet exotic element and that salinity again. Gosh this is good; so rich with this incredible complex nutty element which creates this added dimension that only a few producers are able to achieve. The carry through of sweet, toffee'd fruit is so delicious with chunks of sweet pineapple and a touch of salt.
A producer we fell in love with when we first tried their wines a few years ago, and, a producer that perfectly captures what Sip is all about; brilliant wines, tiny production, and a lovely human being. Fabien is the 10th generation winemaker in the family. Working with vines in Chatillon sur Marne, he creates precise and elegant wines with a lovely structure.
45% Chardonnay, 45% Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir
