Expert Reviews

90-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2012

(70% sauvignon blanc and 30% semillon):  Bright straw-yellow.  Enticing nose of fresh citrus, pineapple and dried herbs.  Show more sauvignon blanc-derived flavors on the palate as well, offering creamy notes of yellow melon, orange jam and candied citrus zest.  Finishes smooth and very long, with an almost smoky note that had me thinking some noble rot might have snuck its way in.  About a third of this wine was barrel-fermented in new oak.  A very good dry white from Sauternes.
