“Clean, bright nose, not ever exuberant, some straw and hay here, good flavor definition, this is an attractive wine with some complexity. Blend is 90% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sauvignon Gris, aged on the lees, from Vignobles Boyer”
Gilbert & Gaillard ~ GOLD
"Pale yellow with brilliant green highlights. Pleasurable nose of white flowers, white fruits and tropical fruits. Supple attack leading into a full, fresh and fruity palate. Well-balanced. A seductive, crunchy Graves

"Pale greenish straw. Vigorous, wake-up call that seems very Sauvignon in Graves idiom. Piercing aroma but lovely and fat on the palate. Mouth filling and much fresher than usual. Great stuff!"

Le Guide Hachette des Vins - 2 Stars
"The vineyards Despagne present wines year after year of high expression, portrayed in this remarkable cuvee. From a rigorous selection of parcels, this 2010 reflects perfectly the typical Sauvignon and Semillion from a clay and limestone soil."

"Smoky, reduced but fun. Pushing the envelope and giving white burgundy a run for its money. Not long but racy and lively."
Jean-Marc Quarin ~ 93 Points
"Pale straw. Refined nose of truffle - subtle, dense, complex and elegant. Immediately beautifully soft on entry. Run through with refined sap and plenty of taste. Splendid classy finish. "

"Seductive aromas of chamomile, lanolin and pear give way to tight but focused flavors of grapefruit, green almond and quinine in this vibrant white, which has a firm, lean character that persuades rather than imposes."
Wine Enthusiast ~ 93 Points
"Great, fresh swathes of Sauvignon Blanc give a delicious herbaceous character to go with the fresh fruits. Good green character, with a light spice from new wood."

"An abundance of marmalade notes intermixed with waxy lemon butter are all present in this honeyed, crisp, refreshing wine, which has loads of personality."

"What a nose, with fresh pineapple, mineral, toasty oak, apricot and other fresh fruits. Full and very structured, with a tight yet thick mouthfeel. Long and flavorful. Really hiding it now, but it's all there."
