    • Proef: Complexe neus met citrus, perzik, rokerig hout en aardse tonen. Zachte aanzet maar in de mond evoluerend naar rijk en krachtig. De minerale ruggengraat en grapefruit-achtige aciditeit houden de wijn strak, 'focused' en lang. Grote Chardonnay!

    • Proef: Bleekgeel, helder met een licht groen randje. Meteen wordt je neus getrakteerd op een fruitfestival (meloen, pompelmoes) waar ook nog strakke mineraliteit bijkomt. De smaak is behoorlijk droog (tikkeltje restsuiker hetgeen extra volume geeft), heeft frisse wit fruit-aroma’s en citrus en verfrist de mond door de elegante zingende zuren.

    • Proef: Edward Donaldson: ‘The Donaldson Family believe Pinot Noir to be the wholly grail of grape varieties and is the reason they fell in love with wine. This is a spe-cial selection from their home vineyard, that is now over 30 years old and largely un-grafted. It was an absolute honour to be asked by ad Bibendum to make this 20-year anniversary wine. We love ad Bibendum and know this wine will end up in the hands of fine wine lovers that will appreciate the passion and energy that went in to creating it.’ ‘ Meerdimensionaal, rijk en overweldigend, gedistingeerd.’ Bijzonder, in vele opzichten. Enerzijds overdonderend Pinot Noir in expressie maar tegelijkertijd een ongekende gelaagdheid met geweldige rijkdom in fruit en elkaar afwisselende aroma’s. Een heerlijk rijke Pinot neus met rijpe kersen ondersteund door pruim en een licht gestoofde gekonfijte indruk. De smaak geeft een enorme densiteit weer met een carrousel van kersen en zwarte bes die elkaar afwisselen. De complexiteit en fijne zuren maken de wijn meerdimensionaal. Een genot om nu te drinken maar enkele jaren in de kelder en de wijn zal in ontwikkeling een enorme complexiteit opbouwen. In de grote lijn van befaamde huis, stijlvol.
