Jansz Single Vineyard Blanc de Blanc 2014

A limited release wine, single vineyard, from a specified block, bottled in clear glass - aiming to mirror some of the premier brands from that appellation in France's North East. 

The first such release was the 2007 vintage, which was released in 2013. Since then Jansz has produced the following vintages: 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and now this  2014.

Brioche, stonefruit, subtle red Berry hints. Delicate bead, substantive across the palate; golden nigh wheaty, creamy hints. 

The time the wine has spent on lees is evident, veering to oak spice remnants - adding to the substance. Fine length, minerality. Actually feels younger than it's 5 years suggests, indicative of time ahead. 93
