Tasting Note:

A wine that goes from strength to strength. Only 5% of this comes from the Bordeaux clone of Sauvignon blanc (last year it was 15%), the majority coming from the finer Sancerre clone planted on the clay/limestone soils of Fronsac. Aged in oak barrels yet without any trace of woodiness, this is a quite extraordinary white Bordeaux. Sophisticated but light and lively, there is a sense of gravitas without any heaviness. Complex flavours of citrus rind, grapefruit and mineral with a touch of stone fruit providing a touch, no more, of richness. Characterful and fine at the same time, the finish is haunting and beguiling.
