Produced by Jonathan Maltus, who also makes the superstar Saint-Emilion wine, Le Dôme, this is a beautifully crafted wine that brings together tropical fruits, flavors of quince and creamy vanilla. There is some good acidity, despite the hot year, which brings everything into balance.
A low-production, low-yield white from a vineyard in the Entre-deux-Mers region of Bordeaux. The result tastes more like a Pessac-Léognan, with its rich, creamy apple and pear flavors, its new wood and its concentration. Great acidity provides the essential backbone to this rich wine.
Toasty, creamy, almost Burgundian in its richness, this wood and tropical fruit dominated wine is rich and full, but has also managed to preserve freshness. Alongside the acidity, there is concentration, and a lively twist of green herbs.
89-91 Barrel sample. A great, fresh fruity wine, packed with grapefruit and lime, topped by yellow fruits, the finish with a waft of acidity. A well-structured, but eminently fruity wine.
89–91. Barrel sample. This is a delicious, spicy wine that glories in its peach and pear flavors. Opulent in style, the wine is ripe and rounded with just a twist of grapefruit acidity.
