Tasted blind. Pale gold colour, sweet grapefruit and with classic Sauvignon Blanc aromas, lemon and zingy, wrapped in well integrated oak. The palate is quite oily and buertty, with green mint leafy and zingy flavours. Lovely balance.
I loved this wine. Nose is flowery, pineapple and creamy. The wine in the mouth is soft, rich, voluptuous with pineapple, citrus fruits and very long lingering finish. This is delicious, reminding me of a Smith Haut Lafitte but about half the price.
Appearance: Bright and clear, it has medium intensity gold color, with legs. Nose: Clean, with medium (+) intensity aromas showing ripe green fruit of custard apple and gooseberry, mineral notes of waxy and lanolin, floral notes of nectarine, dairy notes of butter, maturity notes of honey. The wine is developing. Palate: Dry with medium (+) acidity, the wine has medium alcohol, with medium (+) body and medium (+) intensity flavors of green fruit of ripe pear and gooseberry, maturity notes of honey, dairy notes of cream, herbaceous notes of straw. The wine has a medium finish. Conclusion: Good quality Pessac-Leognan showing a typical Bordeaux white style, with fairly intense nose showing good complexity, the wine has good acidity and structure, with a freshness of fruit balancing well with oak and other development characters, having good concentration and a reasonable length on the finish. The wine is ready to drink now though can benefit from further ageing of another 2-3 years.
