Produced from a 15 hectare, organically farmed plot of 50% Sauvignon and 50% Semillon, it is explosive on the nose with notes of lime blossom, quince and struck match. This is a plump wine of great energy that is still taking shape, but it has all the hallmarks of a benchmark vintage. Drink this very versatile food wine over the next 5 years.
I tasted this wine the other day and it immediately triggered my taste memory from April last year, when I first saw it in Bordeaux during the annual en primeur week. This is my tasting note from my 2014 Bordeaux Report, ‘racy and lip-smacking but with an extra dimension of richness and a softer core on account of employing barrels which have previously been used for Guiraud (the famous sweet Sauternes made at the same property), this is a very smart wine indeed with terrific length. It is just starting out on a great life. The citrus core is incredible – 18/20.’ What strikes me now is that this wine, made from organically-grown 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon has already calmed and relaxed into its stride. It is also baffling that the price for this epic creation is less than a supermarket own-label Sancerre. I cannot explain this anomaly, but I can urge you to call Lay & Wheeler and order a case of this wine today, because it is sublime, with a glorious citrus theme underpinned by the most succulent of oak flavours imaginable. You can drink it with any main course fish or chicken dish and I venture it would nail something as competitive as a blanquette de veau with ease, too.
