This is very tight and rich with dried apple, mango and papaya, yet it's bright and floral. Full body, dense fruit and a long, powerful finish. Really open already but complex and beautiful with a richness and intensity... This is very tight and rich with dried apple, mango and papaya, yet it's bright and floral. Full body, dense fruit and a long, powerful finish. Really open already but complex and beautiful with a richness and intensity that is very, very impressive.

This wine has closed down since I saw it prior to bottling.

This wine has closed down since I saw it prior to bottling. A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon from one of the great estates in Pessac-Leognan the wine has notes of white currants melon and flint/crushed rock with a delicate hit of orange and lemon zest. Give it another 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades. 95+ points

An impeccable wine, this is so finely balanced between its rich fruits and structure. With its seamless character, it offers both fine acidity, green and white fruit and an undertow of wood aging.

With its seamless character, it offers both fine acidity, green and white fruit and an undertow of wood aging. This is a wine for long-term aging.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. This has a much better bouquet with tangible minerality and tension - some fine crisp Sauvignon Blanc here and superb delineation.

This has a much better bouquet with tangible minerality and tension - some fine crisp Sauvignon Blanc here and superb delineation. The palate is nicely balanced with lime, orange peel and citric notes whilst the finish shows comparatively more weight and presence than its peers. Fine.

Very fresh and bright with a lovely racy edge from the start showing mouthwatering quinine white peach and Meyer lemon notes that all glide through the deftly toasty finish. Drink now through 2020. 2000 cases made.

Barrel fermented. Seductive nose. Grapefruit pineapple mineral and toast flavors are countered with ample acidity a great mouth feel good complexity and great length. A big winner out of the gate this was built to age reaching a great drinking window in several years and long lived over the next two decades. Very fine and highly recommended. Only 1500 cases produced.
