Fantastic aromas of papaya, lemon and pear with hints of cream. Full body, very layered and intense. Superb flavors and intensity. Vibrant acidity and freshness. Lasts so long on the palate.

Lasts so long on the palate. One of the wines of the vintage. A blend of 54% semillon, 36% sauvignon blanc, 8% sauvignon gris and 2% muscadelle. Drink or hold.

This is on the showy side, with toasted macadamia nut, butter and creamed white peach aromas and flavors leading the way, followed by warm shortbread, mirabelle plum and lemon curd notes that stretch through the lengthy finish. Almost languid, but a fine thread of verbena maintains the tension while allowing the hedonistic side to strut its stuff. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle. Drink now through 2020. 1,583 cases made. –JM

This ripe and rich wine balances its wood-aging flavors with its ripe tropical fruits. Pineapple, apricots and delicious acidity are all present.

Pineapple, apricots and delicious acidity are all present. It will be a rich and delicious wine, but needs time, so drink from 2020. The first harvest at this château was in 1252. The property is now owned by Bernard Magrez, a wine, art, culture and gastronomy patron. — R.V.

On the nose, it gushes of white raspberries, rainier cherries, pears and citrus. It also carries pronounced aromas of toasted almonds and chamomile, underscored by hints of menthol. As we move to the palate, the wine is more defined by its white and citrus fruits and is held together by a soft core of acidity which carries through on the long, satisfying finish. Pair with a salads of all kinds, soft cheeses or flakey white fish such as flounder. This is drinking well in its youth but will continue to build depth and complexity for another dozen years or so.
