Pale golden yellow in appearance. Rich nose with layers of pineapple, kiwi, honeysuckle, vanilla bean and bees wax. Well rounded acidity (6/10) and medium minus body. Palate grows on you with a pinch of sweetness as well as tons of tropical fruits, citrus rind, honeycomb and a touch of wax. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2029.

Beautifully ripe white Bdx expression with a broad and generous mid palate. In a perfect spot.

Hint of oxidation. My first time drinking this wine. Not bad.

Delectable noted this as a red, but it is indeed a white Bordeaux.

The big boy of the group was the Aile d'Argent, the white wine from Mouton Rothschild. Big oak in the nose showing ripe, sweet fruits, vanilla, and loads of joie de vivre. With air the opened dramatically, revealing a depth and complexity that this wine was meant to show. It's largesse is even buffered with 30% blocked malo.

Kept this 26 Years for this occasion, my daughter graduated for her Masters of Arts. A Point! Cedar, rich, eucalyptus, perfect balance. At Gebr Hartering
