85% Sauvignon Blanc, 13% Sauvignon Gris, 2% Sauvignon Musque
92 Points – Connoisseurs’ Guide. “Ripe, well-extracted fruit jumps to the fore here early on and is this moderately full-bodied Sauvignon Blanc’s driving force all the way to the finish, but the wine is far more than simply fruity and gives full play to the grape’s herbal side with a nice dollop of carefully fit oak sweetening the mix. There is a juicy aspect to its frontal appeal, yet there is enough depth and reserve to say that it will be better if cellared, but, whether it is poured in the short term or set aside for a few years, it is a wine that wants pairing with full-flavored dishes such as a spicy, well-seasoned Provençal Bouillabaisse.”; 91 Points – Wine Enthusiast. “A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Musqué, this wine delights for its supple apricot and nectarine flavors. It’s floral on the nose, with grapefruit and fennel scents, unfolding slowly to reveal a rich texture and fresh acidity.” -VB
