?Well packaged. Impeccably well made. Organically grown. A blend of 50%syrah/shiraz with 50% grenache. Matured in two and three year old French oak. I would call it bang on the money but it?s better than that. Polish, flavour, tannin, length ? everything is in excellent order" Campbell Mattinson, www.winefront.com.au
Tradition is the only blended cuvée in the Boulay line-up, yet even here we can taste the kind of finesse, texture and stony, earthy and salty minerality that has made this humble grower one of France's most respected vignerons. While the intense lime and lemon pith, white floral and ripe stone fruit aromas and flavours can remind us of a great Riesling and even a white Burgundy, the subtle herb and chalk dust characters are all Chavignol. As always, it's a benchmark.
