Not my favorite. Quite oaked, which is a touch surprising but similar to other years of Monbusquet blanc I’ve had. Not much of the Sauvignon / Semillon characteristic comes through. Improves a bit with some time and crucial to have not too cold.

Not overly impressed. Has been in my wine fridge for 10 years waiting to be opened. Clarity wasn't as expected as it had a slight haze. Profile never opened with breathing. Aroma was pale. Like other commented I wonder if I got an off bottle or vintage but clearly it was handled appropriately since I purchased it. For the price point of this I can say I was disappointed.

Quite nice, but definitely does not need more time. Hint of oak, decent acid.
