Two quality whites from Cambridge Wine; tasted Sunday, 16 October 2011.
2009 Domaine Treloar 'La Terre Promise'
Cambridge Wine £13.99. B+
Full on white fruits showing, dominated by ripe peaches and quince; theres a slight oxidative touch to this and also a hint of toast. Decent weight and texture on the palate, quite oily; its a big, full style; definitely mouthfilling; lingering finish. A fairly robust white that would show well with creamy foods.
2009 Petit Chablis 'pas si petit' La Chablisienne
Cambridge Wine £12. B+
Lots of lemon peel and bright citrus fruit on the nose, which carries through to the palate where its bursting with ripe lemons. Atypically rather big for a Petit Chablis, with almost explosive ripe fruits showing alongside a good backbone of steely acidity; lingering lemony finish. Sophisticated stuff.
