Le Petit Cheval Blanc Bordeaux Blanc 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is only the second vintage to be produced from what was formerly the La Tour du Pin Figeac vineyard, just across the road from Cheval Blanc. Produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, it was aged for 20 months in 50% new oak, one-third demi-muids and two-thirds larger barrels. The 2015 Le Petit Cheval Blanc opens slowly to reveal delicate white peaches, honeysuckle, mandarin peel and yuzu zest notes with touches of blanched almonds, baking bread and fresh hay. Medium-bodied with a compelling quiet intensity in the mouth and electric line of refreshing acidity, it has a lovely silkiness to the texture and very long, savory finish. 4,000 bottles were made." --The Wine Advocate 94 pts Feb. 2018
