In 2004, Thomas Hine & Co., acquired Domaines Hine, a 120 hectare (296 acres) estate in Bonneuil which lies within Grande Champagne. This 2005 vintage, bottled in September 2014, is the first single-estate release made using grapes from this vineyard and was blended from only 18 casks.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 27/12/2015

Appearance

(sample cask No. 18) Clear, deep golden amber.

Aroma

Wonderfully floral with passion fruit, pineapple, raisons, honey, gingerbread, burnt biscuit and Christmassy white pepper spice.

Taste

Fruity, creamy-of-soda vanilla, figs, raspberry jam and Jammie Dodgers biscuit, honey, nutmeg, faint clove and mild white pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Long fruity finish. Floral flavours linger with enlivening clove and black pepper spice.

Overall

Floral, fruity and spicy with a light-bodied freshness – this is delightfully characterful, young and zippy, rather than being heavy and woody.
