"I rarely get a chance to taste this wine, and I certainly wonder why after tasting this fabulous, full-bodied, dry white Bordeaux. A terrific effort from manager Pierre Lurton and his staff, this totally dry wine offers up exotic tropical fruit notes, especially pineapple, along with some subtle smoky oak and mandarin orange. With terrific texture, a sensational mouthfeel, but with zesty acidity and a subtle use of wood, this is a fabulous effort that will probably last quite a long time, but who is going to age this wine, when it drinks so great at present? A tour de force in dry white winemaking!" (WA)
