Description

Vintage 2016 was extremely unusual in Bordeaux, with the wettest first 6 months of the year in memory, and just when everyone was despairing, the rain stopped for 3 whole months! The drought conditions made the early rains a godsend, and the vintage is being favourably compared to the outstanding 2015 before it. Crafted from 47% Semillon, 42% Sauvignon and 11% Muscadelle, the wine is an exotic summery white perfect for clams and shellfish as well as summer quaffing.

Smells

A hint of exotic Indian musk and spice, with apricot, white peach and pink grapefruit.

Tastes

Rounded and rich in the mouth, with hints of lantana, citrus, stonefruit and white peach, finishing soft and composed in the mouth. A very poised white from a truly great Bordeaux vintage, this is a fantastic introduction to dry, white Bordeaux. Drink now to 2020.
