Château Mouton Rothschild




Bordeaux Blanc

Grape Variety:

Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Aile d'Argent Blanc, 2017

Tasting Note:

5 parcels of vines go into Ail d’Argent, some of the coolest terroir on the estate, so it is no surprise that here there were minor frost losses. Not that you’d know if from the finished article. The peach blossom, lime, bergamot and vetiver scented nose is one of the most aromatic and floral ‘17s we tasted, while powerful, long flavours of crushed stones, tangerine and salted peaches give a real stature to the palate. A hugely alluring combination of richness, drive and aromatic acrobatics.
