An exquisite blend of 84% Semillon and 16% Sauvignon Blanc, this wine possesses a zesty crushed rock component intermixed with lemon butter, fig, white currant, quince and melons. Its steely backbone of acidity gives precision and zestiness to what is a full-bodied, powerful, concentrated dry white that should evolve for 20 or more years. - Robert Parker
84% Sémillon, 16% Sauvignon Blanc.
Deep, deep gold. Fresh with lanolin and green fruit notes on the nose but obviously a very rich palate with great density. Top note of woodsmoke. Rich on the mid palate but amazingly tangy too. Long and vibrant – a wonderful blend of richness and tanginess. Tightrope and hugely satisfying with real purity and breadth. Builds towards the glorious finish. - Jancis Robinson
