Six parcels of vines contribute to this spectacular blend of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and the rare Sauvignon Gris (long abandoned in most of Bordeaux because of its tiny yield). Here the Sauvignon Gris marks this incredible white Bordeaux with a saturated, green-gold color, and exotic yellow fruit aromatics. The barrels add texture and discreet seasoning (fresh butter and shredded coconut), but nothing that distracts from the pineapple, lemongrass, sweet honeydew, and jasmine blossoms in the nose.
On the palate the wine is sleek and full-bodied, with interwoven flavors of warm grapefruit, candied ginger, salty lemon oil, and dried apricots, all seamlessly integrated with palpable gravelly mineral extract. Drink now – 2022.
