A pretty texture to this wine with sliced lemon, green apple and fresh celery. Grapefruit and nougat, too. Medium body. Sancerre-like. Sauvignon blanc. Drink now. - James Suckling.
Lovely florality to the nose with a gorgeous white stone and yellow fruit aromatic expression. Excellent weight on the palate, a lemon patisserie edge, crisp green apple, touches of grape and juicy orange, but also with sharp lemon too - you get the layers of flavour here. It's crisp and clear, such clarity and precision but also weight and you get the minerality too, the chalkiness that comes across as a fine texture on the palate. Open and friendly, screaming "drink me"! I love this. 5,000 bottle production. Not yet imported into the UK but it should be! - Gerogina Hindle, Decanter.
Just bottled a week before my visit, the 2021 d'Aiguilhe Blanc is a medium-bodied, tangy and incisive wine evocative of citrus zest, crisp orchard fruit and freshly baked bread. Seamless and penetrating, it derives from a late-ripening site on the limestone slopes of the Côtes de Castillon that has always produced an unusually chiseled, mineral style of white Bordeaux. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
Just bottled, the 2021 d'Aiguilhe Blanc is rich, deep and super-expressive. Orchard fruit, dried flowers, sage and mint give the 2021 its strong savory character, while the fruit is in the background. Plush, minimal new oak yields a somewhat stark, yet compelling, dry white. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media.
