Introducing Le Bon, Yarra Valley



Available on Fesq.com.au and via your Fesq & Co Representative from 1 November, 2018.

 

Launching in Spring, the new Le Bon wines from the Yarra Valley are the second project of Julia Weirich, this time in collaboration with Charles Smedley of Mandala Wines. The wines from Charles' vineyards at Dixon's Creek are delightfully young, vibrant and aromatic, the excellent quality we've come to expect from his wines. They have been created in a deliciously easy drinking style of classic Yarra Valley character - textural Chardonnay with stone fruit and citrus flavours; bright berry-flavoured Pinot Noir with good acid profile and fine tannins.

 

The philosophy of the project? Sit back, take a minute (and a sip) and think about all the good things - 'Le Bon' - this wonderful life has to offer!

 

 


The fresh 2018 vintages just off the bottling line are available from 1 November, 2018.

 

C'est bon!

 

Le Bon Chardonnay 2018

Nose: White stone fruit, mandarin, pear and pink grapefruit characters intermingle with hints of citrus blossom, fig, salted caramel and nougat notes.

Palate: The mouthfeel is texturally generous. Fleshy, white stone fruit, peach and cantaloupe flavours sit above a fine citrus line. Lemon brioche, almond meal and subtle vanillin spice characters, linger on the finish.


 

 

Le Bon Pinot Noir 2018

Nose: Fresh cherry, rhubarb, plum and dried strawberry notes combine with hints of orange rind, mocha and cinnamon quill.

Palate: A well-defined acid profile along with fine, powdery tannins, give this wine line, length and texture. Dark cherry, fresh berry, plum and red currant flavours combine with subtle hints of red liquorice, mocha and spice notes on the finish.
