Have aged very nicely and still bright and lively. Blend of Sav. Blanc and semillion. Citrus bit not tart. Very fragrant. A lovely Pessac white wine.

Apple, peach, cinnamon and spices with a rich, oily texture. Long finish, maybe a little oxidized at the end. Wonderful, a nice change of pace for a Chardonnay fan who looking for an occasional change of pace.

Beautiful gold in the glass with great fruit and acidity, but also a roundness in the mouth. Very rich.
