Based on 55% Sauvignon and 45% Semillon aged 14 months in barrel, it offers powerful notes of honeyed melon, tart pineapple, green figs, and floral notes as well as a terrific sense of minerality. Concentrated, medium to full-bodied, with rocking levels of acidity, give it 2-4 years and enjoy over the following 15 years or more.

Full, rich and deep, yet bright, zesty and fresh, this is rockin' . The juicy, bright citrus is incredibly fresh.

The juicy, bright citrus is incredibly fresh. This is made even better with the honeysuckle, crushed rocks and vanilla accents that ride on top of all the ripe sweet, citrus and green apple notes.

Aromas of pineapple, peaches and apple pie with stone. Deep and intense, yet always subtle in the nose. Full-bodied, layered and very flavorful. However, it stays focused and precise in the mouth and at the finish...   Aromas of pineapple, peaches and apple pie with stone. Deep and intense, yet always subtle in the nose. Full-bodied, layered and very flavorful. However, it stays focused and precise in the mouth and at the finish. Serious length. Still needs three or four years to come together. Better after 2022.

The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of tightly wound, intense stone fruit and spicy layers supported by fantastic freshness, finishing very long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Shows a flash of brioche on the finish, with the beeswax element lingering. Needs a little time, but this is distinctive and beautiful. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle. Best from 2021 through 2029. — JM

Hints of tangerine, passion fruit, white flowers and mint all lift from the glass. In the recent past, the Blanc has been oily and unctuous. There is plenty of textural depth to the 2017, but what impresses me most is its understatement and refinement. There is so much to like. -- Antonio Galloni

From the Bernard Magrez stable. Very plush yet with steely precision, this has a hint of Corton Charlemagne about it. Floral nose, zesty grapefruit and stone fruit on the palate – there is no lack of ambition here...   From the Bernard Magrez stable.

Taut, steely and textured, this is a cool, crisp wine. With acidity and minerality all in play, the wine's long-term future is balanced by its immediate fruitiness. Drink this well-structured wine from 2021. - ROGER VOSS
