Expert Reviews

91-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2009

(a blend of 66% sauvignon blanc, 30% semillon, and 4% muscadelle) Light straw-gold. Ripe, appealing aromas of yellow melon and green fig, complicated by quince, vanilla and white chocolate. Rich and suave on the palate, with more melon and guava flavors. This very classy, impeccably balanced wine has a long, clean finish featuring a lingering note of white pepper and a distinctly saline quality. Tasted three different times with consistently high scores.
