Tasting Notes

Essai no 2 is Florence and her husband Thomas experimental range - a series of really tiny micro-vinifications, with the second release being 100% Vermentino, from younger vines. Just 387 bottles! This has excellent weight - all pretty floral notes - think sun baked wallflowers, with good weight and a rounded mouthfeel from time in old oak sur lie. A really lovely drop - a sunshine wine for sure.

More Info

To find a producer making this quality that was hitherto unknown is a dream come true. I still can't believe our luck. The secret is that, all along, the wine has been made at the cellar of the Perrins of Chateau de Beaucastel. But the terroir is phenomenal, and so is the attention to detail in the vineyards. The flavours are just amazing. The timing was impeccable - as the winery is just transforming from being a hobby of Jean-Louis Giornal to a business run by his daughter Florence and her husband Thomas.
