    September 17, 2019 - never understood the style of this house, even visited them and did the tasting with the wine maker once but I just dont get it. tried maybe 3-4 bottles in the past and always lost. Just too big and oily and intense for my taste. hence the low rating.

    July 31, 2019 - Complex and perfumed nose of flint, lemon, gooseberries, orange rind, and white flowers. Great acidity and flavors of lime, lemon, minerals, and rocks on the palate. Long finish. 94-95

    February 15, 2019 - Wonderfully clear, fresh and deep scent of yellow and green fruits, white tea and subtly citric notes. On the palate delightfully clear and pure. Glorious blend of purity, complexity and vitality. Aromatic a mixture of limestone minerality, seed fruit and white tea with a top note of jasmine. Really multi-layered, very balanced and animating. Nice length.

    July 26, 2018 - I don't even love sauvignon blanc, but this was terrific. There is a reason it sells for over $100. I took it to a tasting of reds with some geeks and they all went gaga over this wine, fun! too bad it was my last bottle.

    July 5, 2018 - Pefect-aged Sauvignon Blanc. A sample for a very good Silex vintage. Exceptionally complex and mineral Sauvingnon; Very delicate enamel on the surface, otherwise the wine is pure and precise like a Swiss clockwork. Flint, fine saltiness, subtle citrus notes; bell clear as glacier water. The acid is perfectly integrated and carries the wine to its long finish. A great pleasure with a high drinking flow.
