2016 Reynon Blanc, Bordeaux

90 points Vinous: "The 2016 Reynon Blanc is another winner from the Dubourdieu family.

(AG)" (2/2018) 87-90 points Wine Spectator: "Fresh, with a jicama edge backed by light white peach and honeysuckle notes. Quick finish.

2014 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cooked apples, lemons and stones. Full body, tangy acidity and a grapefruit aftertaste. Lively and fresh." (2/2017) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Carbonnieux Blanc has a detailed and vivacious bouquet offering attractive blackcurrant leaf and citrus aromas, hints of almond and white chocolate just tucked in nicely below the surface. The palate is well balanced with a slice of bitter lemon on the entry. This is a little more piercing in the mouth compared to its peers, as such, it would shine when partnered with shellfish or even hard cheese, rather than a white Pessa ...Read More »

2015 Les Charmes Godard Blanc, Côtes de Francs

93 points James Suckling: "A white with impressive personality. Green mangoes, lemon rind and limes. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Love the dried-fruit and mineral character to the palate. A blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc." (2/2018) 91 points Vinous: "Nicolas Thienpont's 2015 Les Charmes-Godard is as delicious as it has always been. Now that it has been in bottle, the contours have softened a bit. I would prefer to drink the 2015 over the next year or two, while the citrus and floral notes remain bright. Les Charmes-Godard is a blend of 50% Sémillon, 25% Sauvignon Gris and 25% Sauvignon B ...Read More »

2015 Carbonnieux Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has a wonderful citrus character, fresh lemons and limes going with the mineral texture. It is crisp while also structured, bright with acidity and zesty with lemon and orange. The aftertaste is herbal, crisp and bright. Drink from 2022. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (4/2018) 92 points Decanter: "Great definition, this has soft white flowers with a graphite kick on the finish.

2015 d'Yquem "Y" Bordeaux Blanc Top Pick!
2015 d'Yquem "Y" Bordeaux Blanc

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Sauvignon Blanc (75% of the blend) was picked quickly from 25-27 August this year, the Sémillon on 3 and 4 September. It has six grams per liter of residual sugar and the pH, a sizzling 3.20. It has an intriguing bouquet of melted wax, white flowers and hints of sea spray, that marine influence becoming quite strong with aeration. The palate is fresh on the entry with fresh ginger and lemongrass, lively in the mouth with shades of orange rind and sour lemon towards the persistent finish. I would afford this several years in bottle and I suspect you w ...Read More »

2016 d'Yquem "Y" Bordeaux Blanc

96 points Wine Spectator: "Rather rich, with coconut, green fig, creamed pear, yellow apple and jasmine notes all melded together, picking up light acacia and elderflower accents on the finish. Very, very showy, with the underlying cut to pull it off. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Best from 2019 through 2026. (JM)" (3/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Ygrec (or “Y” as it is shown on the label and referred to) is, of course, the dry white from Yquem, and this latest release is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon picked between 5 September and 13 September.

2016 Pavillon Blanc, Margaux (Pre-Arrival)

97-98 points James Suckling: "This is really exciting with a vivid and energetic acidity and brightness. Lemon rind, pear and mineral character. Full-bodied, tight and long. A winner. Great finish." (4/2017) 94-97 points Vinous: "The 2016 Pavillon Blanc is one of the most refined whites of the vintage.

(3/2015) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "The quinine, lemon chiffon and white asparagus notes are gliding together already, with a warm macadamia nut accent adding texture and weight to the finish. Still a little youthfully raw at the very end, but shows lovely concentration and length. Tasted non-blind. (JM)" (3/2015) 90-92 points Vinous: "The 2014 Le Clarte de Haut-Brion is unusually dense in this vintage, the result of a brief heat wave ...Read More »

(4/2018) 91-93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon that will spend nine months on lees in 35% new oak, the 2017 Château Lespault-Martillac Blanc offers a clean, pure bouquet of pineapple, white grapefruit, and subtle minerality.

(12/04) 90-93 points Stephen Tanzer: "Very pale color. Pungent aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, quinine, mint and spices. Extremely dense and intensely flavored, with terrific racy acids framing and extending the grapefruit and spice flavors. Uncommonly fresh in the middle and tactile on the back end. Perhaps less rich than the superb 2000 but with even stronger acidit... Read More »

2001 Smith-Haut-Lafitte Blanc, Pessac-Léognan

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A fabulous, complex perfume reveals scents of herbs, licorice, white peaches, honey, and citrus. This medium-bodied, gorgeously proportioned dry white Graves exhibits flavors of figs, citrus, and white flowers. Beautifully textured, tremendously pure, and authoritatively flavored yet remarkably elegant, it can be drunk now and over the next 12-15 years.

One of the best dry whites of the vintage." (4/2017) 93 points Decanter: "Another Médoc white to bear in mind when selecting this year. A 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon blend, the team picked over the course of four outings, right through to 10th October having started on 12th September. This is far enough up in the northern Médoc to get full estuary breezes, and with extreme selection the crop is one third less tha ...Read More »
