Gooseberry, clove and grapefruit nose with lemon peel and nano peach slivers. Pear and pineapple afterthoughts. Pithy entry of undulating weight, lemon lime and grapefruit, a chalkiness ensues, briny and a touch of angelica.

A rich and beautifully shimmering gold color belies a nose that is salty like the sea, with some cut lawn grass and gooseberry. However nut and honey enhance and counter with a mild sweetness to the salty nose. The palate is firm and completely mineral and loaded with juicy acidity. Some of the saline comes through with a thrust of honeydew melon and tart yellow apples. Long and clean on the finish. The saline and nut aromas make me think of slight oxidation so if Lopez de Heredia whites are not your thing avoid this vintage. If you do enjoy LdH Blanco though the palate on this suggests more to come. #lynchbages #bordeauxblanc #bordeaux #sauvignonblanc #semillon #thegoldenrule — 7 years ago
Vintage 2015 - white cuvée made of sauvignon and semillon, beautiful smell of pears, citrus, melon, good tension with enough acidity and citrus coming back. Ideal lunchewine, very good to get the 'spring' feeling. Very well made, unbeatable p/q #sauvignon #semillon #bordeauxblanc #lunchwine #hapinness — 5 years ago
Interesting 100% #sauvignongris #bordeauxblanc. Mix of grassy notes and tropical fruit on the nose; slightly oily texture on the tongue with an effervescent-like zing at the same time. A teensy bit of green apple and loads of white/yellow citrus up-front and grapefruit pith bitterness linger on a long finish. This one paired nicely with pan-seared barramundi with a lemon and dill pollen marinade. ***Update: After a week in the fridge it’s actually even better as the zing has gone away and the bitterness has mellowed out. Simply lovely wine. #wsjwineclub — 3 years ago
Crisp #bordeauxblanc but quite a but of acidity and not a lot of character. Still it would pair most excellently with shellfish or a clean white fish. — 5 years ago
