  • Velvety golden lemon; structured; complex with nice finish.

  • This was another bottle purchased at the same time as the last bottle. However, this wine appeared notably different. It had a gold center and clear rims. The nose was a bit oxidized at first but this largely blew off after a couple hours of air to show candle wax, apricots, lemon, and some honey.

    In the mouth, this wine was rich and ripe but had firm acidity to balance out the dramatic texture. It had very nice length.

    Overall this bottle was clearly at its peak (or maybe even a touch past). This bottle's maturity was certainly a big change from my last bottle which was stored right next to this one. I have experienced substantial bottle variation from this chateau. The wines are good but you are never quite sure what is going to come out of the bottle.

  • This has everything you need in a classic white Bordeaux wine with its citrus, lemon peel, stone and floral aromatics, rich textures and long, fresh, citrusy, honey tinged, concentrated finish.

  • From a pristine bottle purchased on release, this wine had a yellow center and clear rims. The medium intensity nose displayed lemon custard, wet stones, almond paste, and a bit of honey.

    In the mouth, this wine was ripe and rich and yet firm and still a bit young. It had lovely balance but I felt the wine was not really showing all it has yet.

    If you decide to pop this, I would suggest a 4+ hour decant. Alternatively, it should pick up a point or two with 5 - 10 more years in the cellar.

  • Naso elegante, pulito, preciso e mobile, ampio, pesca matura, lanolina, molto balsamico, benzina. Grande stratificazione palatale, è denso ma equilibratissimo e scorrevole, polposo, acidità e mineralità uniscono le forze e sorreggono con grande equilibrio la materia.
