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.
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)
The colour here suggests a warmer vintage, with a ripe hue to the citrus yellow, and on the palate this impressive wine is shot full of Pessac glamour. It's a reminder - one that I have seen with a number of Pessac whites in recent months - that 2015 is a great vintage for these wines. Richer and more gourmet than the 2016 or 2017 for sure, it's fleshed out with exotic touches of apricot and nectarine without sacrificing any of the slatey lift of minerality. Thoroughly enjoyable. 40% new oak. (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... (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
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)
