A great white with the same gravitas as a red. collapse

(94–96) Barrel Sample. This is a perfumed wine, ripe with fragrant yellow fruits that are sliced with lemony acidity. It is a stylish, intense wine, while at the same time strongly textured and therefore sure to age well.

Full-bodied, rich and seductive, it is absolutely laden with tropical fruit and spice layers, with a racy line to support and long, opulent finish. The blend is 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 39% Sémillon and 4% Muscadelle. Anticipated aging regimen is 14 months in 55% new and 45% second-fill French oak barrels.-LPB collapse

Full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully balanced, and with integrated acidity, it’s another smoking good white from this estate. collapse

The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, more saline than previous vintages with touches of walnut and smoke towards the precise finish. Excellent. -- Neal Martin collapse

Here, too, the more restrained style that is typical at the estate these days is very much in evidence. The blend is 57% Sauvignon Blanc, 39% Sémillon and 4% Muscadelle, all fermented in oak, including larger 500-liter and 10HL foudres. Larger format oak adds an element of tension and brightness that is super intriguing.- AG collapse
