The 2022 The FMC underwent 15 pickings over 40 days in this vintage, fermented and aged in 400L French oak barrels, about 40% new, for up to 12 months. This has an intriguing bouquet with a subtle reduction, scents of cooking apple, flint and light grilled hazelnut aromas blossoming with aeration. The palate is where it's at…wonderful balance and a killer line of acidity. There is a disarming purity of fruit: white peach and orange pith notes, a touch of bitter lemon effortlessly counterbalancing its natural richness and weight, leaving it fresh yet substantial. This FMC is one of the best that I have tasted.
