Sweet, lush, and crisp grapefruit rind dominate. Acidity that comes across like light bubbles drive crispness and keep things fresh. A bit of bitterness in the finish makes this wine difficult to consume in quantity.
The home estate of Pierre Lurton, the director of Cheval Blanc and d’Yquem. 45% Semillon, 45% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Muscadelle combine to produce a wine with floral lemon and grapefruit scents, good acidity and an easy-to-like lime and grapefruit finish. 87-88 Pts

(Château Marjosse Blanc) Dry, papery, pale fruit character in the aromatics with this wine. The palate has a nice softness to the texture, with a very fine-boned acid core which sits very well within the texture of the wine. Attractive, racy, but with a very dry fruit character.
