A nice white Bordeaux, aromas of stone, tropical & citrus fruits with some floral oak. On the palate flavors of pear, peach and lime citrus with oak wrapped in vivid acidity. Long finish ending with a tangy citrus edge. Tasting Sample.

Lemon tart and orange pith and floral notes on the nose. Lemon curd and honey on the dry palate. Bright, but well balanced acidity. Medium body and finish.

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

Stone fruits and some minerality to balance out this white BDX. Lovely summertime wine.

Interesting wine, haven’t had many white Bordeaux blends, I would try more. Had a weight to it, good acid and crisp finish.

Wonderful blend of citrus and buttery oak. Subtle hints of spice with good length.
