Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

Readers should not miss the 2008 La Proportion Doree, a 660-case blend of 68% Semillon, 30% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle. It is a superb example of what can be done with French savoir-faire and California grapes. Glorious aromas of honeyed caramelized figs, honeysuckle, melons, and orange blossoms are followed by a medium to full-bodied white with beautiful acidity, length, and richness. A tour de force in dry white winemaking, it should drink nicely for 3-4 years.

($60; 68% semillon, 30% sauvignon blanc and 2% muscadelle; no malolactic fermentation) Good bright yellow. Highly nuanced aromas of peach, apricot, citrus peel, honeysuckle and ginger. Densely packed, broad and sweet, with a layered texture and considerable viscosity to the flavors of ripe quince, citrus oil, flowers and spices. This blend boasts terrific lift considering its full ripeness. Morlet will hold back 200 six-packs of this wine for a later release, as he is eager to show collectors how semillon with sauvignon and muscadelle will gain complexity as it ages. Made from a blend of seven vineyards, as Morlet recently found some semillon vines that he says are more than a century old.

Complex, offering spicy, smoky details, and pear, fig and yellow apple flavors that are plump and rich, with great finesse and many layers. There's enough acidity to keep the flavors fresh and lively. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.

Light gold. Dry and crisp. From a QPR perspective, the wine seems pricy. The crispness of the Sauvignon was more dominant than the fruitiness of the Semillon, despite the grape ratio suggesting otherwise. I had hoped it would be a bigger wine.
