Intense sauvignon aromas of gooseberry green fig and vanilla are nicely lifted by hints of lemon and white flowers. Richer and riper on the palate with buttery tropical fruit flavors carrying through to the creamy lingering slightly oaky finish. Has the stuffing to buffer its high alcohol. -Ian D'Agata

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2011
A ripe creamy style with notes of green melon white peach and macadamia nut that glide through a creamy finish. Very lightly toasty with a macadamia nut hint on the finish.

More restrained and less exuberant than usual this blend of two-thirds Sauvignon Blanc and the rest Sauvignon Gris is oaky smoky and more elegant than usual.

Aged for 6 months in 50% new oak prior to bottling. The Monbousquet Blanc is a very small production from a 1 hectare vineyard in the Southeastern part of the appellation with from vines averaging 16 years of age. Yields were only 32 hls/ha. Hand-harvested in successive pickings between Sept. 13th and Sept. 23rd. Alcohol 13.9%. This boasts a nose of melon white peach and freshly cut grass. On the palate this is a crisp and refreshing white with brilliant acidity and beautiful persistence. The finish is long and mineral laden. It would pair perfectly with oysters salads grilled chicken and light cheeses and while this could cellar for 3-5 years I recommend drinking on release as this wine is best enjoyed young. 375 cases produced.
