Ratings: RP 88
Grape Variety: 78% Sauvignon, 20% Sémillon, 2% Musacdelle

Rating: Robert Parker 88, Wine Spectator 92
Another excellent vintage for Bordeaux’s dry whites, which tend to be vastly underrated and exceptionally long-lived (30-40 years in some cases). The 2005s possess crisp acidity as well as serious weight, richness, and texture. Space constraints did not allow full tasting notes, but this is one of the top 2005 dry white Bordeaux wines.
Lemon zest, smoky oak, fig, and buttery tropical fruit characteristics are present in this straightforward, fruit-driven Pessac-Leognan. Earthy, with good acidity as well as excellent weight and depth, it should be consumed over the next 10-12 years.
