Special Introductory Offer
A small, but very highly regarded Loire AOC which sits next next it's more famous sibling, Pouilly Fume. It shares many of the better quality soils with it's neighbour, Silex (flint). Les 2 Silex comes from a single vineyard which has two different coloured versions (red-iron & yellow-silica) of the prized flint soils.
In the glass you get this vibrant pale gold tinged with hints of green. On the nose you get quite pronounced aromas of grapefruit, blackcurrant bud and flint. On the palate it's sleek, rich and lively, with seductively striking exuberant flavours that deliver a lovely intensity, that combines with the acidity with precision.
