2014 Domaine de Belliviere Jasnieres Les Rosiers Sec BlancDavid Bowler
All about the peach. It is a lively peach that has some burnt characteristics mixed with an underlining of peach tree freshness. Did I mention it smells like peach? Wrapped around this mystical fruit are layers of rocks and floral essence with hints of burnt sugar and acacia. Honey, nectar, oyster shells, algae and kiwi. Layered and incredibly engaging. I imagine it will only progress over time. Medium bodied with tangy acid and structured minerality. Most of the aforementioned elements, fruits and spices are finely integrated yet very alive on the palate. There is a fine sense of harmony erupting all over the palate. I immediately think of the Lion King if there was a play which could encapsulate a wine.
