2013 (brut): complete baby – attractive texture, apple and grapefruit.
2012 (still in vat): Looking promising, although still quite yeasty but with attractive texture and good acidity in the finish.
2011 now in bottle: Honeysuckle aromas, honeycomb, quince, back bone of acidity, still decidedly young. Will develop.
2010: One of the stars of the vertical underlining what a good vintage 2010 is for both dry and sweet Loire whites. Light gold, a touch of honey, beginning to evolve and develop increased complexity. Again a backbone of fine acidity and overall a lovely balance of fruit and acidity with very good length. Fine!
2009: Mid-yellow to light gold, more evolved than the 2010 but with more weight from a hotter year, some acidity but the 2009 is less vibrant than the 2010.
2008: Light gold, some honeyed aromas, A leaner and tighter style than the 2009 but lovely balance and length. One of my favourites.
2007: Light gold, very clean, precise and vibrant. Less concentration than the 2008 and, especially, the 2009 but has a lovely delicacy and length.
2006: Marked jump here in evolution with some aging oxidation, rich fruit reflecting year and a little flat lacking some vibrancy.
2005: The first year of Les Treilles. Quite full, opulent fruit and texture but with good acidity, complexity in the finish but a different style and less impressive in comparison with 2010, 2008 and 2007.
