A blend of Sauvignon Blanc (40%), Sémillon (40%), and Muscadelle (20%), but the SB dominates the blend. Lemon/lime nose with strong acidity on the palate, along with grass on the short finish. Full bodied and not at all shy. I tend to like acidic wines but this is a bit sour, probably would be better with a few more months in the bottle. Still nice as the weather gets warmer.

Peaches, mangoes and lemon flavors on the nose, before leading to a nice minerality, counter balanced with sweet florals (honeysuckle) and lychee flavors. Crisp on the finish, well balanced.

This wine has a nice lemon/lime nose, citrus palate- very crisp with a medium body and good acidity.

I totally thought this was 100% Sauvignon Blanc. According to the internet (so you know it's true) the blend is: 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon, and 20% Muscadelle. The Sauvignon Blanc does rule the glass for the most part. It's flavors are out in the front: ripe tropical fruit. Grass. Cat pee. But underneath and on the finish is something a little different. I just took a shower, so it's not me, but I swear there is almost a body odor note underneath it... not in a bad way. A sweaty smell. Also, there is an odd "grapey" note on the nose. Is that Muscadelle? Interesting wine. Initially, this wine tastes like 100% Sauvignon Blanc, but give it some time to open up and the other grapes start to show.

This is a nice Sauv Blanc -- good nose with citrus predominately, with some floral and just a bit of cat pee (about as much as I can reasonably accept in wine). The real reward comes on the palate where this wine is tart, sharp and not overwhelmingly full mineral. There might be a touch of honey as the previous reviewer mentioned, but I didn't really get it. Crisp finish, though. With regards to food pairing, I had it alone but I can see it standing up well to something creamy. Sherry-Lehmann has this one in stock often.

A great buy! You can tell from the nose how super-ripe it is. Grapefruit, ginger, quince, and a whole slew of citrus oil aromas and flavors coalesce beautifully in this refreshing and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, moving from in-your-face fruit, to tangy acidity, into a conclusive, pitch-perfect harmony. Enjoy it while it's young and spry.

This is a traditional blend of 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Sémillon and 20% Muscadelle. Refreshingly acidic and fruit forward, it is an excellent aperitif and pairs well with fish and oysters.

Reminiscent of springtime, this dry Sauvignon Blanc-based white offers a fragrant bouquet of wild flowers, followed by enticing flavors of passion fruit and key limes that finish with a clean and zesty blast.

It just wouldn't be summer without those crisp, zesty Sauvignon Blancs, but many are just too light for those die-hard Chardonnay drinkers. Enter the white Bordeaux - blended with Semillon to give it more weight and richness, but still remaining super-fresh, it is the perfect compromise. Pair this one with shrimp salad, grilled sole or Italian pasta salad.

Reminiscent of springtime, this dry wine offers a fragrant bouquet of wild flowers followed by equally enticing flavors of passion fruit and key limes that finish with a clean and zesty appeal.

The high percentage (40%) of Sémillon softens this wine, making it supple and round without losing the crispness of the Sauvignon Blanc. Bright tangerine and telltale gooseberry notes are balanced with honeysuckle and melon.
