78% Chardonnay, 23% Pinot Noir. Eight years on lees. Arras strikes again with a highly distinctive, fascinating wine. Some vegetal parting shots (my friend said celeriac and I can’t really disagree) drift away to crystallised yellow grapefruit and milky papaya, stony oyster with sage and juniper. Toffee yoghurt runs through the palate which is creamy, richly-textured and shot through with pithy seville orange and sweet butter. The acidity and slightly raspy grip play a long, delicious game on the finish. Subtle it is not – multifaceted and delicious is certainly is.
