A blend of 68% Sauvignon Blanc and 32% Semillon, the 2017 Les Lecons Des Maitres reminds me of a Haut Brion Blanc (it really is that good) with its crushed citrus, tart pineapple, white flowers, and salty minerality. Racy and pure on the palate, with medium-bodied richness and depth, it has bright acidity, a terrific sense of tension and elegance, and a great finish. It needs 2-3 years of bottle age but will be very long-lived.

Composed of 68% Sauvignon Blanc and 32% Sémillon, the 2017 Les Leçons des Maîtres opens with aromas of gunflint, smoke and dried hay, fleshing out to lime zest, lemongrass, chopped herbs, pineapple, candle wax and white flowers. Light to medium-bodied with a waxy texture, it has loads of spicy tropical fruits and savory nuances lifted by zippy acidity, with a long, textured finish. Yum! 68 cases were made.-EB
