This lovely property was managed for many years by the much-regretted Prof. Denis Dubourdieu, who sadly died in 2016. His family has maintained traditions and the highest standards with this beautiful wine. Thanks to their special vineyard management skills, a small harvest of golden, profoundly-concentrated, nobly-rotten bunches was picked here. The resulting wine, 100% from Semillon grapes, aged in 1/3 new oak barrels and was bottled in mid 2021.
This 2019 is an exquisite wine. Pale lemon-gold in colour, it is abundantly aromatic, including lime-flower, spiced lemon peel and peachiness. Palate has marked intensity – not too sweet – with superb aftertaste. There is opulence here, with gorgeous creamy texture perfectly balanced with energetic, fresh fruitiness and a finish that is racy, long-flavoured and full of finesse (for drinking 2024-2040+).
