Wine Advocate | Rating: 98Blended of 66% Semillon, 32% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Muscadelle, the 2015 La Proportion Doree has a gorgeous honeyed lemon, white peach and grapefruit-scented nose with hints of wax candles, honeysuckle, elderflower and baking bread. Full-bodied, rich, creamy and oh-so-seductive, the palate delivers a wonderful intensity of honeyed citrus flavors with a long, exotic spice and mineral-laced finish. With still loads to reveal, this classically styled white should age beautifully! 660 cases were made.Author: Lisa Perrotti-Brown
