The wine has a lovely resinous lightly honeyed bouquet with hints of toffee apple & nutmeg with just a touch of reduction. The palate is balanced with good depth actually not that far in style from a mature Chardonnay with a pleasing waxy finish
James Suckling 95-96:
This is solid with dried pineapple, grapefruit and apple character. It’s full-bodied with fantastic structure and depth. Phenolics are all there. Serious. 86% sauvignon and the rest semillon.
James Suckling 94-95:
A juicy and solid young St Emilion with crushed stone, hints of large grains of sea salt and a black berry character throughout. Full and chewy, but polished. New Grand Cru. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.
