100% Sauvignon. Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of green apples and honeysuckle. Firm acidity leads the medium palate which yields green apple, citrus rind, and a touch of birch. Moderately lingering, slightly stony finish. Sauvignon done Bordeaux style with body and brightness that makes a perfect pair for seafood, roasted poultry, or Asian cuisine.

2014 vintage. The website being very vague, the information is coming from other sources. A Sémillon (60%) and Sauvignon Blanc (40%) blend from selected parcels vinified completely in wood. Note that this estate produces more white than red, with 25 hectares out of 40 planted with white grapes. Brilliant light golden yellow. Exotic fruits and white peach with a toasted hint. Lightweight in alcohol (abv. 12,5%) but intense flavour of ripe pineapple and peach with crisp acidity and good length. Not particularly complex but attractive and probably at its peak. — a month ago
This is a delicious dessert wine from France.
Delicious right out of the bottle and much better after an hour of airtime.
Showing oranges, tangerines, honey, ripen apples, Indian spices, pears, light tropical fruits, peaches and white pepper.
Full-bodied with high acidity and well balanced. Rich and extracted.
Showing nice complexity with a nice buttery mouthfeel.
Delicious and engaging.
Will age nicely in the next 20 to 30 years.
Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.
I had it all by itself as a dessert.

Great yellow colour, and rich grapefruit aromas. Underwhelming fruit flavours in the mouth but with good length. Subtle and sophisticated, but needs the right pairing. Not a great match with chicken pie, with spring vegetables. Would have been better with simple grilled fish or prawns.
Maybe a bit expensive at £15 — 8 hours ago
Just perfect whether a 1/2 or a full bottle. Primary taste of white flowers, lychee, peach and pineapple. Perfect acidity, bitterness and off sweet. Now 10 to 15 years waiting for these secondary tastes to develop. Quite a challenge to not touch something this good earlier. — a day ago
A touch of Muscadelle accents the floral qualities of this traditional Bordeaux white blend. (Balanced amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon). Nicely perfumed nose of pear, tropical fruits, grass and wet stones. Melon, white peach, lemon and mineral flavors on the pallet. Beautiful balance, texture and acidity. Fantastic food wine. — 5 days ago
100% Semillon. Star bright yellow gold. Inviting nose of baked quince and dried yellow flowers. Complex medium-bodied palate echoes the nose adding layers of dried pineapple (without the sugar), lanolin, and tennis shoes. Medium minus acidity means this wine can sit with spicier fare than the typical Bordeaux, but still hold its own with traditional “white wine” fare. Moderate finish. With no Sauvignon Blanc this is not your typical Bordeaux Blanc. The extra weight and lower acidity means you can take it to more “Chardonnay-ish” places than usual. Southwest Asian fare did well for me. Drink now through 2025. — 24 days ago
15’ Château Pepe Clement. Should’ve decanted this for sometime. 15 needs a few more years in bottle. That being said… Petro soon opens up to this magnificent bottling. Orange blossom, pineapple, Honeysuckle. Zesty acidity. All spring out of the glass. — a month ago
