Tasting Comment

Appearance

Attractive, shining pale gold with green highlights.

Nose

The nose is intense, complex and elegant, a cornucopia of citrus fruits, orange mingling with grapefruit, some tasters even finding hints of mandarine…

Mouth

The palate is fresh and vivid, with a crisp liveliness that adds intensity and leaves an agreeable, lingering fruitiness.  Drink now, with white meat or fish in sauce. (January, 2012)

 - Note :

A sister estate to his other Pessacs, including La Louvière and Couhins-Lurton.  Not so well known, it nonetheless produces some fine wines, whose originality springs from a vineyard planted 100% in Sauvignon. This vintage, as admirable as its predecessor,  has a delightful, delicate nose of white fruits with just a hint of vanilla from partial aging in oak.  The texture is fresh, silky and nicely balanced.  Perfect with grilled fish, drink now and over the next three years.
