Even better - benefits from a night in the decanter
Drink Now, or to 2023 and beyond
Deep-ish straw-gold colour. Lemon, apple, honey, hay, slightly nutty and even a whiff of petrol - unusual, complex and alluring. Fine and elegant on the palate, with spiced citrus and apple flavours, notes of garrigue herbs, orange peel, just a hint of grape tannin and a wonderfully refreshing backbone of acidity. It really is gloriously fresh, fruity, herby and - yes - "winey". The finish is tangy and mouth-watering and keeps you coming back for more. Furthermore, it really does benefit from a night in the decanter, becoming richer and more complex with plenty of air. Delicious, but will it age? Yes. But whether you want to drink it now, or keep it for a few years, you are onto a winner! 

Le Guide de Gault & Millau 2015 - 17.5/20 "Big crush for this vintage 2011; Jean Paul Luc signs certainly one of the best white wines of the South of France. Notes of sweet almonds and verbena infusion in a fleshy mouth. Pure happiness!!!! "
