2013 Mouton Rothschild "Aile d'Argent" Bordeaux Blanc

SKU #1254152 90-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark gold-tinged straw-yellow. Smoky herbs, grapefruit pith and honeydew melon aromas are complicated by white peach and spicy pear. Dense and brisk on entry, then a bit diffuse in the middle, but with vibrant flavors of passion fruit, grapefruit and herbs. Firm and bright but quite ripe too, showing nothing green or hard on the long, bracing finish. Seems less focused than recent vintages of Aile d'Argent, but perhaps another year in the bottle will help it gain precision. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine shows so much rich fruit. It has a herbal edge, but the yellow and white fruits really define it. Wood-aging has left hints of spice, and the wine also has a tangy, mineral edge. It is ready to drink. (RV) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Yellow-green, green apple fruit from Sauvignon with light fleshiness from Semillon, good clarity and depth, best Aile d’Argent I have ever tasted. (GH) Inner quote mark (4/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Quite bold, with a singed brioche frame adding some heft to the core of lemon curd, tangerine and lemon chiffon notes. Features a long salted butter finish. An extroverted style, but has enough zip to stay honest. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

The white wine from Mouton possess a depth of complexity, and quality that surely expose its awesome provenance. The color is a bright tinge of light gold, with aromatics that made me think of a much complicated Sancerre. Flint (pierre à fusill, as we say in French), delicate notes of honey, white flowers along with a touch of musk. Its citrusy, peach, and lanolin texture on the palate marry perfectly with the wood spices from the oak aging. I have to mention its tremendously long finish as well. Very impressive, reminiscent of the grandest crus of Bourgogne.
