It offers up a beguiling nose of lemon drops, lime blossoms, struck flint and fresh grapefruit with hints of mandarin peel and coriander seed. The elegant, refreshing, medium-bodied palate has an electric line of intense citrus flavors with tons of mineral sparks, finishing long and perfumed. This is absolutely a wine without peer in Bordeaux (anywhere!), and I love it! - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

I always love this wine, and it stands out even more than usual in this vintage because so many whites have missed this gathering of pace and clear minerality. Massal selection from Sancerre estates.

Tasting like a hypothetical mix of a top Loire and Bordeaux Blanc, it’s medium to full-bodied, with bright, racy acidity, fabulous tension, and a great finish. It’s a gorgeous white as well as one of the gems in the vintage. This cuvée is all Sauvignon Blanc from a pure limestone vineyard located near Fronsac.

Aromas of dried apples, lemon zest, green papaya, herbs and toasted almonds. It’s medium-bodied with tangy acidity. Exciting citrus zest, stones and wild herbs on the long finish. Drink or hold.

It has a refined bouquet of honeysuckle, jasmine and hints of freshly squeezed lime. The palate is well defined with a fine saline tang and an underlying orange peel note on the finish. This does not quite deliver the persistence of previous vintages, but it will open in a couple of years. -- Neal Martin
