Winemaker's Notes

5262208

"Shows some lovely honey and apple character, with green apple, melon and mineral. Almost spicy. Full and lively, with a long finish. Very pretty already...92-94" WS 4/07."This is a strong vintage for Bordeaux’s dry white wines, probably as good or better than 2005. Crisp acidity combined with outstanding concentration and the fact that most of the white grapes were harvested before the rains began in mid-September resulted in an impressive group of wines…94-97"WA 5/07
