L'ORMARINS BLANC DE BLANCS 2017

A mesmerising stream of fine bubbles can be found in the glass. Bold maritime breeze, brine and salt-laden sea air whiffs on the nose. Cream cracker and lemon zest too. The palate offers up big tangy citrus flavours with vibrant zest immediately noticeable. Clean, fresh and vital. A richer, creamier biscuit and lees element then comes to the fore, indicative of the complexity, refinement and layers of flavour. Harmonious, statuesque and beautifully structured, this wine has fantastic length and presence on the palate. Long farewell with a distinct lime marmalade on toast note.

The wine announces with an eye catching vigorous bubble. Typical yeast and cracker biscuit notes on the nose with lively citrus rind and a briny, maritime nuance is also apparent. The palate succeeds in being both refreshingly vibrant and simultaneously dry. Bright effervescence with creamy lees richness from its time in the bottle, with distinct brioche and sourdough toast notes vying with lively grapefruit and citrus flavours. Elegant, restrained, taut and thrilling, it’s beautifully poised yet equally flamboyant and exuberant! A gentle nutty note lingers on the long tail.

Seductive dark berry compote with attractive spicy highlights on the nose. Rounded, plush and appealing on entry, delivering what the nose promised: plum, mulberry, cherry and blackberry fruit sprinkled with spice. Soft textured and velvety smooth, the wine has a good frame and backbone. Beautifully poised and integrated, the flavours linger on a long, rewarding finish. Packed with appeal by good structure and body.

Instant charm of fruitcake and Christmas pudding; black fruits, spice galore and light brush of herbs on the nose. Gently rounded and supple upon entry, further adds to its attraction. The spicy plum, black berries and cherry of the nose are echoed on the palate too. Delicious and succulent but structured too with a good backbone. Silky smooth in texture, it has a gentle satiny grip with a long, rewarding tail.

Instant appeal of citrus, stonefruit and granadilla aromas. That continues in the mouth with vivacious lemon and grapefruit flavours to go with the more tropical nectarine and granadilla. Refreshing and juicy with bright acidity, the fruit counters that well and there’s lovely body and mouthfeel to the wine. Rounded, rewarding and long lived.
