    April 16, 2021 - Now this is the Silex that I was hoping for. Pale yellow color and lighter than a 2005 Champagne that was drunk previously. Beautiful and complex aromas of flint, jasmine, tropical fruit. Palate felt light but concentrated young peach flavors. Fantastic bottle. Sadly my last.

    June 18, 2020 - Purchased from auction recently. Cork was tough to remove but eventually came out in pieces. Color was light maize. Nose was almost nonexistent - maybe citrus like fresh squeezed juice. Medium- to full-bodied on the palate. Lots of acid on the finish. One-dimensional. Not the best Silex I’ve tasted.

    February 10, 2019 - Kleur: Licht goudgeel Aroma / bouquet: Een restant van citrus en vuursteen, rokerig. Tonen van gist, een vleug botrytis en een hint van madeira, deze wijn bevindt zich duidelijk in de laatste ontwikkelingsfase. Smaak / Afdronk: Mondvullende, sappige wijn met een uitgesproken zuurgraad. Romig en geconcentreerd, volstrekt atypisch voor Sauvignon Blanc. Retronasale indrukken van limoen en sinaasappelschil. Algemeen / potentieel: Silex op hoge leeftijd. Nog steeds aangenaam. Rijpe en rijke wijn. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 11 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 91/100

    Color: Light golden yellow Aroma / bouquet: A remnant of citrus and flint, smoky. Showing yeast, a hint of botrytis and a hint of madeira, this wine is clearly in its final stage of development. Taste / Finish: Mouth-filling, juicy wine with a pronounced acidity. Creamy and concentrated, totally atypical for Sauvignon Blanc. Retronasal impressions of lime and orange peel General / potential: Silex in old age. Still pleasant. Ripe and rich wine. 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 11 + Taste / Finish: 17 + General / potential: 8 = 91/100

    January 13, 2018 - Wow; what a wine! Clear and clean in the glass without a trace of green as the silvery-yellow moon color. The nose is rich with apricot, creamed corn, lemon oil, and smokey flint. On the palate, the wine is balanced and nuanced. All the elements of the bouquet come through on the palate. A very precise wine. Smokey with sesame on the finish. Vibrant and crisp; Locked and loaded and ready to go. Enjoy! 12 % alc. With shrimp scampi and a goaty bucheron. Highly Recommended.

    June 3, 2017 - Belle robe jaune pâle
    Attaque su l'Ananas
    Ensuite, vanille, herbe, trèfle
    Pourrait viellir encore longtemps, et que l'avisité s'assouplisse
