Very fresh white-peach, gooseberry and floral nose with some real complexity. Very succulent and concentrated with a long, salty and minerally finish that is vibrant enough to wake the dead. This is delicious now, but should develop beautifully through at least 2030.
The 2015 Blanc de Lynch Bages, 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Semillon and 17% Muscadelle, matured in 45% new oak. The yields were just 29.8 hectoliters per hectare, because of the dry growing conditions that particularly affected the Sauvignon Blanc. It has an attractive bouquet with scents of lime, gooseberry and beeswax, the oak neatly enmeshed. The palate is fresh and vibrant, harmonious in the mouth with a twist of bitter lemon on the mid-palate, easing down towards the finish with Cornice pear and citrus peel notes. There is very pleasant salinity on the aftertaste that urges you back for another sip. This is an accomplished Blanc de Lynch Bages that should offer several years' drinking pleasure. (NM)
This ripples with a mix of mirabelle plum, white peach, yellow apple and acacia flavors, delivering a long, pure finish that has a lovely verbena echo. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle. Drink now through 2021. (JM)
Very pungent indeed. Almost kiwi richness on the nose. Lots of depth though. Really racy.
