|Grape||Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon|
The 2015 Grand Vin Blanc Sec from Lafaurie-Peyraguey is a blend of 73% Sémillon and 27% Sauvignon Blanc that was cropped at 14 hectoliters per hectare. It has a tightly wound, vibrant bouquet with apple blossom and dewy meadow. The palate is very well balanced with fine linearity, a subtle marine influence with a razor-sharp finish that will gain weight once in bottle. This steely white Bordeaux is well worth seeking out.
This is fresh and floral with sandalwood and cedar aromas to the pear and green-apple character. Full-bodied yet tight and bright. Crisp and focused. Linear and very long.
