Nez sur des arômes d'agrume confit, de pêche, fleur séché avec des notes de pierre à fusil. Bouche texturer, certaine richesse, le restant frais et harmonieux. Captain Vino et moi l'avons trouver à l'aveugle! Très bon mais a point, ce n'est pas nécessaire de l'attendre plus longtemps. Très bien-
Drink up. Has evolved -- oxidized -- remarkably fast for a white Pessac. Enjoyable for its buttery cashew and pear torte aromas & flavours. Solid palate intensity and length, but lacking any freshness and a bit cloying/viscous on the finish. Consistent TNs between bottles purchased at LCBO and SAQ.
I've had quite a bit of white Bordeaux recently and this one was a little disappointing. Everything that you'd expect from a white P/L, but turned down a couple of notches. Green citrus, cream and a little savoury asparagus character on both the nose and in the mouth. Medium length. This was a perfectly OK wine, but there are many better choices out there for less money.
Better than last bottle. Nose of buttered toast, pear purée, lemon curd and ever so slightly floral. Medium acidity, body and alcohol. Good length. Quite enjoyable between cellar and room temperature; a slightly smoky vanilla toast quality really comes through. Bottle variation is an issue -- as such, I'm going to drink the rest of what I have through 2016.

(Chateau Latour-Martillac Blanc Pessac-Léognan) This has a talcy, minerally, stony nose, although these are nuances mixed with a grassy softness. It does seem a little harder on the palate though, which has a forceful, rocky character with a firm acid backbone. Nevertheless I feel it has less flesh than the others, and is perhaps not so concentrated as some. Nevertheless it has a good flavour profile, and it has a rather harmonious feel to it. The definition is good, and it may well develop more interest with age.
