TASTING NOTES

"The aromas of dried pineapple and mangoes dominate the nose with hints of macaroons and cooked apples. Full-bodied, dense and tannic with serious thickness. It’s layered, extremely long and chewy with a powerful and ripe finish. Exotic, wild wine with large presence. Why wait?" JamesSuckling.com

"The 2016 Aile d’Argent underwent a high percentage of malolactic fermentation (27%). It has a generous, expressive bouquet of honeysuckle, beeswax and lime flower aromas, and just a light oily/Riesling note in the background. The palate is well balanced and crisp, with a fine line of acidity and a touch of stem ginger and orange peel toward the finish. This is beautifully balanced and long, and while not quite in the league of the 2015 Aile d’Argent, it is seriously delicious." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Blended of 53% Sauvignon Blanc, 46% Sémillon and 1% Muscadelle, the 2016 Aile d'Argent comes charging forth with tropical fruit notes of guava and pineapple plus peach preserves, lemongrass, candied ginger and orange blossoms with a waft of clover honey. Medium-bodied, the palate is broad and rich with just enough freshness, finishing on a savory note." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"The 2016 Aile d'Argent has developed nicely since I last tasted it. Dried flowers, chamomile, mint, lemon confit and tropical notes are all nicely woven together. The Aile d'Argent is quite ample in feel, but less overtly exotic and sweet than it has been in some recent years." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Quite exotic and spicy. Lean and green underneath and a flavour that reminds me of the figgy character of Napa Valley Sauvignon (but not the weight or sweetness). Racy and sinewy and much more streamlined than it once was. Good power." JancisRobinson.com
