Tasting Notes"You just know that Aile d'Argent is going to suit a vintage like this, where the warmth of the summer accentuates the rich apricot, white pear and juicy nectarine flavours of the wine. This tiny drop of Muscadelle gives lift and florality to the finish, and overall there is width, depth and texture aplenty, with a fabulous lick of salinity on the finish. Does a great job of walking the tightrope - and the team under Philippe Dhalluin are not afraid of underlining the texture of the wine, giving 17% of the production some malolactic fermentation, one of the rare Bordeaux whites to do so. Harvest September 7 to 11. Drinking Window 2021 - 2034. 95 points" Jane Anson, Decanter Magazine "A very exotic Aile d’Argent with dried-mango, fresh-pineapple, and sliced-lemon aromas and flavors. Full-bodied and very ripe, yet it’s framed by bright acidity. Tangy and vivid with a long, intense finish. Exciting. Contrastive. 38% semillon and the rest sauvignon blanc and gris. 97-98 points."
