Decanter Magazine Review
This is extremely good quality. It's a delicious wine full of flavor, bright and crystalline with a beautifully crisp color and more Sauvignon Blanc than usual. The harvest was spread out over three weeks because earlier hail had meant uneven ripening. It took place between 29 August and 21 September. Drinking Window 2022-2038.
Wine Tasting Notes
Beautiful pale yellow color with glints of green. The nose presents tremendous aromatic intensity. Exotic fruit predominates over the citrus notes. The oak from the barrel-ageing is well integrated. The palate presents superb freshness. The wine has lots of volume but remains lively thanks to its acidity. Fresh pear and notes of white flowers. Overall, the palate is characterized by length, balance and harmony, and a long aftertaste.
54% Semillon, 46% Sauvignon Blanc
