"Tasted at the UGC in London. Ripe nose with lime, gooseberry and a touch of cut grass: good definition and lift. The palate is ripe and full of grapefruit, lime and gooseberry notes, but just lacking some tension towards the finish. This should be better considering that 2007 was a favourable vintage for Bordeaux Blanc. Drink now-2014. Tasted November 2009." (WA)

"Dominated by the grassy characters of Sauvignon Blanc, this is a tight wine, almost cool in its character. The fruit skin tannins are very apparent, giving the wine a crispness, layering acidity and a strong citrus element." (WE)
