2017 Aile d'Argent, Bordeaux Blanc

Nice nose, creamy and good energy, grapefruit and excellent drive, touch of peach and lime blossom. Long and citrus and pithy on the finish. But nice nervy acidity in the finish

TASTING NOTES

Super-intense citrus – pink grapefruit. Smoky, scented richness, full and fragrant with apricot in the mouth. Firmly textured, structured, dense and still so fresh. Very, very long. Chalky depth on the creamy textured finish.

The impressive ripeness and intensity combined with elegance and finesse are what make this wonderful white. Honeysuckle, apricots, glazed grapefruit, spices and nutmeg. Medium to full body and fleshy fruit that’s lifted by the delicious acidity to the long finish.
