Grain Arvine de Fully Marie Therese Chappaz 2017 Biodynamic wine, full bodied, complex, mineral, racy, burgundy alternative. Still young, the wine is initially discreet on the nose, a little brioche, grapefruit, orange, cream with minerals underneath. The palate is dry, characteristically bitter, yet rich and mouth coating, a wine for sensual pleasure. Truly delicious wine for special occasions (or everyday if you can afford it!), ideal territory for a big birthday dinner or Christmas, a wine which delivers on all levels, rich and round so works as a crowd pleaser yet a very distinguished wine with complexity and depth to intrigue ardent wine lovers. Eat with very good chicken dishes, rabbit, terrines, some cheeses, (not too strong), fleshy white fish with rich sauces. The 2017 new vintage is delicious, drinking well and will age too.
