Member Review by ONUMello:

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.

Great summer wine, floral, honey with a steely backbone. Fragrant nose and a terrific value at this price point. Wonderful with fish.

Was pleasantly surprised at this wine, given the low, low price and the nice aromas of melon and citrus. These notes were echoed in the flavors, which were round and juicy. A full, delicious example of a dry sauvignon blanc-semillon blend. Would be good for Thanksgiving. We had with grilled shrimp and couscous and it was also very good, the richness of the wine serving as a good counterpoint to the shellfish.

A classic Bordeaux Blanc offering a pretty nose of citrus and peach in harmony with refreshing acidity. This delicate wine is a perfect apéritif or enjoy with light fish dishes.

<p>Located in the commune of Haux, on top of a clay-limestone slope in the heart of the Bordeaux wine country, this estate has been devoted to winegrowing from the very beginning, and has belonged to the same family for the past four generations.</p>
