Normally see their Sauternes dessert offering, so this was really cool to try. Very much true to the Bordeaux Blanc style (based on my limited experience). The nose here was reminiscent of the “super SauvBlancs” that are becoming popular out of Napa/Sonoma...grapefruit rind, crushed limestone but also a soft lemon cream note. Not heavy, nor light, it carried tropical fruits showing a kiss of oak barrel. Thanks @Benjamin Keator .

Incredibly young - beautifully delicate and seamless - underripe white pear, key lime, grapefruit rind, white pepper, jasmine, and crushed rocks.

2014 - 93 WS
2015 - 94 WS

Just gets better year to year, and this is just their dry Barsac!

perfume of apricot, peach, citrus blossom & marmalade ~ similar flavors enter creamy & broad yet get focused w a vein of acidity, minerality & salinity ~ 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Interesting flavor, very tart. In fact it's really too tart for me.
