The sweet white wines of Sauternes and Barsac are impressively rich and powerful, with great purity and depth. They are, without any exaggeration, absolutely fantastic! Certainly, the maximum temperatures in August were slightly too high for the Sauvignon Blanc to develop the same amazingly intense aromas as in 2007 and 2008. However, those wine tasters who find the exuberant character of this grape variety excessive in some instances will be pleased with the powerful, complex, flavourful Bordeaux Sauvignon Blanc in 2009. This year, Sémillon grown on limestone soils developed remarkable powerful and richness.

Barrel sample. Generous, ripe wine, its fruit a great melange of sweetness, fresh crispness and layers of bright spice and lemon zest. Great balance.

This wine has closed down since I saw it prior to bottling. A blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon from one of the great estates in Pessac-Leognan, the wine has notes of white currants, melon, and flint/crushed rock with a delicate hit of orange and lemon zest. Give it another 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following three decades.

Very fresh and bright, with a lovely racy edge from the start, showing mouthwatering quinine, white peach and Meyer lemon notes that all glide through the deftly toasty finish. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases made.
