Produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, this superb dry, lemony white reveals hints of spring flowers, orange peel, crushed rocks, and a subtle touch of smoke. Medium-bodied with superb texture as well as purity, this is a dazzling example of white Bordeaux. Anticipated maturity: now-2020.

Stone, apple, pineapple and honey aromas follow through to lemon curd and chalk character. Full-bodied, with a lanolin and apple tart flavor. Thick and a little rustic now, but very interesting and stylish. Needs time... Stone, apple, pineapple and honey aromas follow through to lemon curd and chalk character. Full-bodied, with a lanolin and apple tart flavor. Thick and a little rustic now, but very interesting and stylish. Needs time. Best after 2010. -JS

A great Pavillon Blanc, fine, rich and balanced. From its citrus opening to the final burst of crisp, ripe fruit, this shows the great style of white Bordeaux in 2006. Spice, honey, melon and toast all mingle... A great Pavillon Blanc, fine, rich and balanced. From its citrus opening to the final burst of crisp, ripe fruit, this shows the great style of white Bordeaux in 2006. Spice, honey, melon and toast all mingle harmoniously. R.V.

Rich and quite primary, combining very ripe yellow fruit notes with more bracing licorice and mint. Very dense and quite dry, even a bit youthfully aggressive today. (This actually has 2.2 grams per liter of residual sugar, which is a definite positive for the balance of this outsized wine.) Conveys a tactile sense of mineral dust. The yield here was just 12 hectoliters per hectare due to spring frost, according to estate manager Paul Pontallier, and some lots came in with 16% potential alcohol. Very concentrated, palate-staining with a long pineappley finish that leaves the mouth feeling fresh.
