This shows fantastic mineral, grapefruit and lime character with a full body, tangy fruit and a crisp, intense finish. It’s like a top Loire sauvignon blanc in freshness but layered and intense. Drink now and enjoy.
The 2012 Aile d'Argent Blanc has much more intensity on the nose compared to the 2013, bridled with apricot blossom and fresh grapefruit bursting from the glass. The palate is crisp and fresh, slightly waxy in texture with a fine bead of acidity and a detailed, quite pithy finish that lingers pleasantly in the mouth. One of the best Aile d'Argent from the estate in recent years, this is going to give a dozen years of pleasure, if you can resist temptation. Tasted August 2015.
This is vivacious, with yellow apple, white ginger, white peach and chamomile notes all bouncing along. Mouthwatering acidity holds the melon-accented finish. Drink now through 2017.
Rich, ripe nose with some smoke and hiss of Sauvignon Blanc fruit and then it rather rapidly falls away. Jancis Robinson
