[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Aile d'Argent Dry Whites Unreleased - - - 95-96 - 89-92 -
Hide the tasting notes

Incredible intensity of sea salt, sliced apple and dried pineapple character. Full and racy with beautiful acidity and a long, long finish. Lots of papaya, pears and pineapple. Racy.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Fresh, with lemon granita, white peach and chamomile notes backed by a light twinge of tarragon. Bright, pure and refreshing, this wine has quietly improved under Dhalluin's watch. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Lots of sliced apple and pear character with a full body, fresh fruits and a tangy finish. Shows such balance and beauty already.

Score: 91 - 92 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

An herb-driven style, with thyme, chive and white asparagus notes racing along, flecked with lime zest through the finish. A tasty wine in the making.

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Clarte de Haut Brion Dry Whites Unreleased - - - 95-96 - 90-93 -
Hide the tasting notes

The second wine of both Haut Brion Blanc and La Mission Haut Brion Blanc benefitting from fruit which doesn’t quite meet the strict selection for the two Grands Vins. Gorgeous aromatics, fresh citrus and creamy textured with vivid acidity and length.

Score: - Albany Vintners

Shows excellent depth and richness with sliced apple, apricot and pineapple character. Big and rich. Excellent. This is pretty amazing. 66% sauvignon blanc and 33% sémillon.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

The quinine, lemon chiffon and white asparagus notes are gliding together already, with a warm macadamia nut accent adding texture and weight to the finish. Still a little youthfully raw at the very end, but shows lovely concentration and length. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Domaine de Chevalier Blanc Dry Whites Unreleased - - - 95-96 - 92-95 -
Hide the tasting notes

A solid and muscular Domaine de Chevalier with layers of fruit. Very dense, loads of flavor. Full body, bright acidity and a long, long finish. Tangy acidity. It lasts for minutes.

Score: 95 - 96 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Very pure, with a long makrut lime note holding the upper hand, while white peach, Chartreuse and tar fruit accents fill in behind. Offers a kiss of brioche on the finish. There's lots to like here.

Score: 92 - 95 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

[Add to wish list] [Add to pre-order list] Haut Brion Blanc Dry Whites Unreleased - - - 98-99 - 95-98 -
Hide the tasting notes

Slightly paler than LMHB Blanc. A broad range of aromatics of white blossom, lemon oil and fresh mint. Density and full body with crisp white stone fruit and a touch of grapefruit all the way through to another beautifully long racy finish.

Score: - Albany Vintners

The is breathtaking like looking down a well that doesn’t end. Full and rich yet deep and gorgeous. It really does take your breath away. It goes on and on with minerals, dried apples, dried mangos and lime. Superb. This is very unique in the blend with 68% sémillon and the rest being sauvignon.

Score: 98 - 99 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

This returns to a more typical blend of two-thirds Sémillon and one-third Sauvignon Blanc after the rare inverse in 2013. Very youthful, with loads of salted butter, warm brioche and lemon curd notes trumping the quinine, white peach and green plum core for now. The toast is substantial but integrated, gilding rather than weighing down the mouthwatering finish. This should be another beauty in the long run. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 95 - 98 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
