I was absolutely floored by this wine. I'm already a huge fan of aged white Bordeaux style blends, and I had high expectations for this wine, but I still wasn't prepared for just how sublime it is. This blend of 69% Sémillon, 26% Sauvignon, and 5% Muscadelle is fermented in a mixture of neutral oak and stainless steel. The Sémillon is from 40-year-old vines and gives the wine its beautiful texture and weight. The Sauv Blanc lends freshness, acidity, and zest, while the Muscadelle lends a haunting perfume and exotic top notes. The color of the wine reminds me a little of Sauternes, with a bright golden, slightly caramel color. On the palate however, this wine is dry, vibrant, and full of energy and verve. A slightly creamy, waxy texture from the Semillon is perfect balanced with the vibrancy of the crisp Sauv Blanc and airy, perfumed Muscadelle. A complex, aged white wine, but one that is uncommonly fresh and energized for 10 years of age. One of my favorite wines of the year so far.
Top Value! Drink from 2021 to 2028
