93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

(a blend of 64% semillon, 34% sauvignon blanc and 2% muscadelle):  Captivating aromas and flavors of lemon, lime, lichee, honeysuckle and menthol, along with an intriguing saline nuance.  Then sweet, lush and fat, with harmonious acidity and notes of citrus peel and herbs giving shape and lift to the middle palate.  Wonderfully creamy, deep wine with a smooth, very long finish.  Luc Morlet will hold back 100 cases of this to release a few years down the road, but he told me he'd really like to taste it after 20 years.

This wine is fabulous, probably one of the best whites I've ever had. The Wineaccess copy description is right on (I know it can be tiresome to read those, but they actually are helpful). Be aware this is not a crisp wine, like most sauvignon blancs. In fact, if I had blindly tasted this I would have guessed viogner.

About California

It is remarkable that an industry essentially less than a half-century old could capture the attention of the American wine-buying public to the degree that California has. Powerful consumer interest in California wine is driven by two major factors. The more obvious reason is that California's best wines, which come from grapes grown in...
