Terret Bourret 2019 Tasting Notes by Jancis Robinson

La Font des Ormes, Vieilles Vignes Terret Bourret 2019

IGP Pays de Caux Certified organic and biodynamic.

100% Terret Bourret (aka Terret Gris) on basalt over limestone, 60-year-old vines.
Low yields of 20 hl/ha.

Aged and vinified in stainless steel with bâtonnage on lees. 1,800 bottles. Lemony, white flowers and apples on the nose. Hedgerow-flowers freshness over comice pears with a light herbaceousness. A bit of a hole in the finish but otherwise interesting and subtle.
