Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

97 JS / 94+ WA / 94 JD / 18 JR

The refined, yellow grapefruit nose and the elegant first impression on the palate hardly prepare you for the tidal wave of flavor and freshness that then hits you. Yet, the wine remains so light-footed and delicate. Then you glide into the distance through the very long, silky finish. Drink or hold. - James Suckling

Pow! The 100% Sauvignon Blanc 2016 Le Petit Cheval Blanc explodes from the glass, delivering a tantalizing perfume of ripe peaches, mango and fresh pineapple with hints of lime blossoms, lemongrass, fresh ginger and spearmint plus a waft of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with tropical and stone fruit flavors complemented by a compelling textural component and a racy line of acid, finishing very long and very delicious. - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Wine Advocate

While the red deservedly gets all the attention from this estate, they make a thrilling white as well. The 2016 Le Petit Cheval Blanc is all Sauvignon Blanc brought up in barrel. It boasts a vivid light gold color to go with notes of key lime pie, crushed citrus, and white peach that build beautifully with time in the glass. It’s balanced, medium-bodied, and pure. - Jeb Dunnuck

Tasted blind. Lightly oily and with real Pessac-Léognan character, I thought! Does not taste like 100% Sauvignon from Sancerre. Fuller and richer than most. Lively and rather compelling. Hint of passion fruit – in a good way. Long and interesting. - Jancis Robinson
