One of the most profound blends of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and in this case, 2% Muscadelle, is the 2007 La Proportion Doree (64% Semillon, 34% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle). An extraordinary nose of waxy, honeyed grapefruit, melons, figs, and quince is superb. In the mouth, a liqueur of rocks intermixed with quinine, quince, and waxy notes continues to cascade over the palate. This is a sensational, dry, incredibly complex wine that shows the potential that blends such as this can achieve. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. (4/2008)
Bright medium yellow. Knockout nose combines lemon zest and oil, licorice, lichee, honey and lanolin, with a floral honeysuckle quality emerging with air. Lush and sweet but firmly built, with terrific energy to the citrus oil and orange blossom flavors. As dry as this is, its richness gives it an almost sweet impression. Wonderfully seamless and fascinating white blend with a youthful, almost tannic finish. This will take on deeper apricot and quince flavors with bottle aging. The semillon used for this blend comes from 35- and 50-year-old plantings, according to Morlet. (a blend of 64% semillon, 34% sauvignon blanc and 2% muscadelle)
