    January 22, 2016 - Drinking beautifully right now. Almost 18 years! Sauvignon blanc dominating, helped by semillon for structure. Beautiful light yellow color (not dark golden), which shows it's still good, in its best way: equilibrated acidity, nice color, structured, wood/oak integrated and lots of aromas. Grass, white spices, white flowers, honey... you can choose! Now I can see why most people say that SHL blanc is the best white wine from Bordeaux. Opened this bottle for my 32 y.o. birthday. Drank it with my girlfriend with cod and pasta. Great wine! Will definitely look for another bottle. Cheers from Brazil!
