Tasting Notes and Scores

BI
92-94

Grapefruit, white chalk and a hint of tropical fruit. Lovely fresh acidity, waxy texture and clean citrus and white pear fruit. Very smart wine. - April 2017

Blended of 55% Sauvignon Blanc, 43% Sémillon and 2% Muscadelle, the 2015 Aile d’Argent charges forth from the glass with gregarious ripe peach, pink grapefruit and orange blossom notes plus touches of beeswax, fresh hay, acacia honey, baking bread and allspice. Medium-bodied, the palate is tightly wound and satiny textured with wonderful freshness defining the palate and lifting the intense stone fruit and savory layers, finishing very long and very minerally. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Interim Issue Mid-February 2018, The Wine Advocate

The 2016 Aile d'Argent Blanc is a blend of 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 46% Sémillon and 2% Muscadelle. Philippe Dhalluin told me that there was more malolactic this year, around 27% of the wine going through complete malolactic fermentation. It has an attractive nose of lime flower, granite and orange blossom aromas, a touch of pineapple cordial developing with time. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, tensile and precise with impressive focus. This is another a deep or powerful Aile d'Argent, but I admire the precision on display here. - Wine Advocate #230, April 2017

A fresh and fruity white with sliced-pear and apple character. Undertones of pineapple. Full-bodied, savory and round-textured wine. Delicious. - March 2017
