Aromas of dried mangoes, lemon rind and cream. Undertones of violets and lavender. Full-bodied and dense with great length. Lovely, fine phenolic tension. Beautiful structure. Amazing length. The tannins are alive. Pure sauvignon blanc. 4,500 bottles made. Drink or hold for many years ahead. - James Suckling

This is only the second vintage to be produced from what was formerly the La Tour du Pin Figeac vineyard, just across the road from Cheval Blanc. Produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, it was aged for 20 months in 50% new oak, one-third demi-muids and two-thirds larger barrels. The 2015 Le Petit Cheval Blanc opens slowly to reveal delicate white peaches, honeysuckle, mandarin peel and yuzu zest notes with touches of blanched almonds, baking bread and fresh hay. Medium-bodied with a compelling quiet intensity in the mouth and electric line of refreshing acidity, it has a lovely silkiness to the texture and very long, savory finish. 4,000 bottles were made. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

The 2015 Le Petit Cheval Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) is wonderfully harmonious in the glass. Textured and rich in the glass, with slightly tropical-leaning nuances, the 2015 retains a good bit of freshness and nuances. Hints of jasmine, white flowers and apricot emerge over time. Aging in larger 600-liter barrels helps preserve a good bit of freshness. What a gorgeous wine this is! - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
