(JS 97-98 points) Lots of white peach and red apple with crushed-stone and pine-needle undertones. Full-bodied, yet compact and linear with beautiful toffee, light caramel, praline and nougat character to the fruit...   (JS 97-98 points) Lots of white peach and red apple with crushed-stone and pine-needle undertones. Full-bodied, yet compact and linear with beautiful toffee, light caramel, praline and nougat character to the fruit. Hints of wood. It shows phenolic tension and form, yet remains agile and energetic. Impressive for the vintage.

The medium to full-bodied palate delivers fantastically intense citrus and pear flavors with a racy backbone and silky texture, finishing long and fragrant. The blend this year is 67% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Sémillon and 3% Sauvignon Gris, with anticipated bottling projected to be taking place on December 14 and 15, 2021. The alcohol is 13.5%. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

On the palate the wine is full, rich, creamy, oily and fresh, with layers of ripe, sweet, spicy, yellow citrus and tart green apples in the finish.

Well balanced and easy to recommend. Tasted three times.

Passion fruit, white flowers, lemon confit, ginger and white pepper are all very nicely lifted. In 2020, the Blanc is decidedly airy and less unctuous than it has been in the past. It will be interesting to see where things stand at the end of aging, -- Antonio Galloni
