2018 Mouton Rothschild "Aile d'Argent" Bordeaux Blanc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1421891 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark There was no malolactic fermentation and no Muscadelle this year--both unusual for Aile d’Argent. Composed of 55% Sauvignon Blanc and 45% Sémillon (harvested August 30 to September 5), the 2018 Aile d'Argent has 13% alcohol and is a little reticent to begin, offering fragrant notions of lemongrass, freshly chopped ginger and lemon tart with a core of fresh pineapples, white peaches and aniseed. The palate is rich, sultry and exotic with loads of spices and tropical fruit and an electric backbone of acid, finishing very long. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A light, fresh style, with flashes of herb, sel gris and white asparagus that are very pure, opening slowly to show white peach and honeysuckle details. Very pretty. (JM, Web-2019) Inner quote mark

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a delicious wine that has been extremely well handled with complexity and a long drawn out finish. It’s wonderfully fresh with touches of aniseed and flint alongside citrus and sweet pear flesh alongside an underlying spice doing a great job of providing focus and lift. To maintain freshness, no malolactic fermentation was carried out on any of the white grapes this year -- in most years Aile d'Argent has maybe 10% malo, and no Muscadelle was used as it didn't succeed as well as they'd hoped in the dry summer. The harvest took place between 30 August 30 and 5 September. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

90-92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Aile D'Argent Blanc offers good freshness and purity as well as some tropical hints in its tart peach, pineapple, and crushed citrus aromas and flavors. It's beautifully balanced and has a fresh, clean, crisp style ideal for drinking over the coming couple of years. (JD) Inner quote mark (5/2019)
