Simply a lovely wine, All the freshness of Bordeaux white with the extra mouthfeel and elegance that the Sauternes region brings

So interesting to have tried this against the '11 with Lurton himself. Right away the nose is clearly a youthful sauvignon blanc. Nothing like the nose of the '11 already. But some unique factors must be considered. '12 is a declassified year and the first year Y was vinified in SS tanks.

A baby, but delicious. Pineapple, pineapple and did I mention pineapple? Waxed, apricot, peach, yellow apple. Love to see in 5 years

I wouldn't say it's dry, necessarily, but it's super tasty.

Nose is Sauvignon for sure. Starts off with a sweet, honey note that turns into pear for me. Acidity is certainly there. Very interesting. Would love to try it again in five years and 10 years.

ソーヴィニヨンらしいハーブ香も鼻につくわけでないがしっかり。ボリューム感があり。
年月が経ち熟成したらもっと良くなるのかしら。。
それにしてもボトル¥27000は高過ぎる!!

ボトル¥27000だそう。
