Community Tasting Note

  • JonnyG Likes this wine: 95 points

    June 18, 2015 - A stunningly good Bordeaux white, displaying hallmark intensity while remaining utterly harmonious. Lovely, slightly viscous texture and clean, lush mouthfeel. Sweet pear and citrus blends seamlessly with a grassy aspect, through to a long satisfying finish.
