Slightly flinty aromas of lemons and dried pears. Really pristine and vibrant. The palate has impressive mango and yellow-peach flavors set in a smooth, fleshy core and a long, deep finish. Drink or hold.
A wine of cut, energy and tension, the 2015 Gazin Rocquencourt Blanc is gorgeous. The green orchard fruit, mint, lime and citrus notes all pulse with considerable vibrancy and tons of Sauvignon Blanc character. Yields were just 40 hectoliters per hectare. The wine was fermented and aged in barrel, 40% new. Tasted three times. (AG)
Excellent aromatics - clear Sauvignon character without going overboard. Crisp, clean white flower and citrus on the nose, and excellent persistency on the palate. It's light in structure, the 40% new oak extremely well managed. This is a very good white wine, consultant Michel Rolland showing a very light touch. (JA)
The 2015 Gazin Rocquencourt, which comes from the Bonnie family at Malartic-Lagravière, is pure Sauvignon Blanc and matured in 40% new oak. It has a tremendously fresh bouquet with Granny Smith apples, fresh pear, hints of grilled walnut and white peach. There is lovely definition here. The palate is fresh and vibrant with appealing fresh pear and white peach notes on the entry, the oak well integrated with an almond, almost patisserie-tinged finish. This is an energetic and engaging white Pessac-Léognan to consume with pleasure over the next 8-10 years. (NM)
Tasted blind. Very light nose. Punchy combo of fruit and acidity makes a good initial impression but on the palate this is more middle of the road. Strong green grassy flavours with a bit more body than, for example, Margaret River! Quite well put together. Chalky finish. 16.5/20 points. (JR)
Creamy and rounded in feel, with pretty shortbread, lemon curd and verbena notes that are persistent through the lightly toasted finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. (JM, Web Only-2017)
