Louis Jadot Marsannay Blanc 2018
The 2018 Marsannay Blanc (Domaine Louis Jadot) contains the fruit from half a hectare planted with Chardonnay Rosé, a selection of Chardonnay that's delicately pigmented, making up around half the cuvée. Revealing aromas of pears, almond paste and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and attractively phenolic.
The 2018 Marsannay comes from a single hectare of vines from three parcels. It has an attractive orange pith and citrus-scented bouquet that gradually unfurls in the glass. The palate is fresh and zesty on the entry, marked by a fine line of acidity. A dab of lemongrass furnishes the finish. A playful Marsannay Blanc for early drinking.
