Community Tasting Note

  • Xavier Auerbach wrote: 93 points

    June 24, 2016 - A private tasting (67 Pall Mall, London, UK): Tasted blind. From magnum. A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon; 10 months on the lees with bâtonnage (1/3 new oak); RS 6.2 g/l. Wonderfully floral and expressive, beautiful oak integration, complex notes of vanilla, vegetables and tropical fruit; the palate has broad shoulders but it is elegant too, lovely ripe fruit, perfectly seamless, very subtle phenolics; lovely resonance on the finish, very good length.
